Lego party how to: Lego block melt and pour soap tutorial

These were such a hit that I am adding these to my handmade Christmas gift list.  Again,  you need the mold so this tutorial is more on how to do melt and pour soap.
What you’ll need:
Melt and pour soap ( I buy it at Michaels with a 40% coupon for around $4) this made 6 big blocks about the size of the palm of your hand or a little bigger.
Food coloring or coloring for making soaps
Mold to pour soap into
slice however much soap you want to use from the block and put into a microwaveable bowl

 melt in the microwave for about 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between until it is all melted

 add the coloring a little at a time.  You can always add more but you can’t take it out if you put in too much.

 The secret to clear soap is to not stir air into it so mix in the coloring gently.  The soap will darken once dry so keep that in mind when adding the coloring.   Once you get to the color you are happy with, pour into the molds carefully and slowly.  Do not let it sit for very long before you pour it into the molds or it will start to gel and harden.

wash your bowl : )

    Molly, The molds are from lego but I think they do not sell them anymore however you can find lots of them on Ebay. There are two other types that make the longer blocks which are even better for crayons but we used them to make ice for the party (which was never photographed).
