Fish in a Bag Soap

20 Sep

  • Cut off a chunk of your glycerin block. Ours was about 3 inches.
  • Cut that block into smaller pieces.
  • We cut ours into thirds.
  • Place blocks in a microwaveable plastic bowl.
  • In this bowl we did about three batches, but we recommend you start with one batch your first time.
  • Prepare an ice-water bath in a bowl.
  • Microwave the soap until it melts (about 45 seconds for a small batch).
  • Make sure all the blocks are melted.
  • If not, stir and put it back in the microwave for 20-30 seconds more.
  • Using a funnel, carefully pour the soap into a plastic bag.
  • The funnel helps the soap run straight down to the bottom and not all over the sides of your bag.
  • If it gets on the sides, it hardens that way and doesn’t look realistic when you’re done.
  • Fill it about 1/4 to 1/3 full so the soap will end up being a good size for little hands to hold.
  • The soap will be full of little bubbles at this point, so quickly spray it with the alcohol.
  • That will take care of them.
  • Take your bag to the ice bath and hold it in the ice water for a moment.
  • Using your skewers like chopsticks, grab a fish and lower it into the soap, keeping it upright and somewhat in the middle. (Unless you’re the morbid type–you could make it floating upside down or laying on the bottom.
  • Just don’t blame us when your child bursts into tears over her dead “fish.”) Once the soap has started to harden a little and the fish isn’t moving around in it anymore, you can remove it from the ice bath and leave it upright to harden completely
  • Tie the bag closed with a cute ribbon or even a twist tie and you’re done!
  • This would make a great gift for kids paired with a hooded towel!
  • Also a great gift to kids going a kids birthday party.
