I tried my hand at making some kids soaps..here are a couple I made.
Let me know what your honest opinion on them is because I intend on using them as stocking stuffers and need to know if they are gift giving worthy.

The popsicle is chocolate raspberry. I didnt have any chocolate scents or brown coloring sence Im new to this whole soap thing pretty much so I used some hot chocolate to scent and color the chocolate half of them.

I made a bunch of these little toy embedded soaps and made them in all sorts of colors some with frogs and crocodiles and what not but I thought I would share this one because it was one of the ones I added no color to so it was easier to take a pic of.
For molds with the kids toy soap ones I used an empty cupcake liner container. It worked out pretty good and the little soaps have "legs" from the bumps on the bottom of the container. totally unplanned but when I watched my kid use one it worked awesome because when he set it at the edge of the tub it didnt slide of because of the bumps on the bottom..okay enough jibber jabber Tongue

i love the popsicle ones! is that just a normal popsicle stick? if so you may want to test out how well it does being wet constantly, just to insure safe keeping for the little ones  Wink

and kids always love soaps with surprises inside!

Cute! Frog and turtle embeds are a big hit with my nephews, we constantly re-do them when they use them up. The popsicle looks really fun!

Hint: If you wrap with plastic wrap, you can use your blow dryer as a heat gun to hit it and it will shrink up a little to stay tightly wrapped and keep the moisture in the soap better. Not as great as shrink wrap and a heat gun, but it's not bad!

Yeah its a plain stick but my kids have one they forgot in the bathtub with the water still in it and it hasnt fallen apart yet but I will defiently think about that as well.
Thanks for the input.
