These soap Valentines are so fun! I got the idea back during October from my sweet blogging friend Shannon over at Milk and Cuddles.
Kids will scrub and scrub their hands to get to the surprise in the middle. We used bouncy balls. Look in the party favor or holiday/Valentine section for a party favor idea to use in your soap.
You Will Need:
- heart muffin tin
- 2 lbs clear soap glycerin
- Soapin’ You’ll Be My Valentine Free Printable <—– click to print
- treasure for the soap, like bouncy balls
- 12 clear 4×9 cello bags
- scissors or paper cutter
- 6 sheets of cardstock
Cut your brick of soap glycerin into cubes with a sharp knife.
Fill your muffin tins with 2 and a half cubes of glycerin.
Pop them in the microwave for 40 seconds, or heat them in a 300 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
Gather your party favor item you will use as the surprise.
Here are our bouncy balls.
Drop one ball in each heart muffin tin.
The ball will not sink to the bottom, but that is ok.
Let them cool 100%. I waited about an hour.
Once the soap is hardened, you can remove them from the muffin tin.
How cool are these?
Print your free printable. Cut them out using scissors or a paper cutter.
There is a place for the kids to write who the soaps are to and from on the back.
Need a printable for your party or celebration? Check out my friend Kelli at 3 Boys and a Dog. She does design work at a very budget friendly price.
Fold the printables in half at the dotted line.
Fill each cello bag with one heart soap.
Fold the top of the bag over to close.
Place the folded printable over the folded cello top and secure closed with one staple.
And you have an awesome gift for your Valentine.
Easy and adorable!
