Who makes bath time lots of fun? This adorable DIY Rubber Ducky Jelly Soap! Your kids will love baths even more with a squishy, wobbly soap shaped like their favorite bath toy.
Hello, resin crafters! It’s Jessica from Mad in Crafts. I am a big fan of DIY spa products, and jelly soaps are some of my very favorites. If you aren’t familiar with jelly soaps, they are fully functional soaps that have the consistency of jello. My kids get so excited whenever I make a new batch of these fun soaps.
Supplies needed to make the mold:
- EasyMold® Silicone Paste
- Small plastic or ceramic ducky (mine was from the dollar store)
- Paper cups
- Stir sticks
Begin by mixing together equal amounts of the two parts of the Easy Mold Silicone Paste. Mix them until the paste is a uniform blue color. Paint a bit of the silicone paste all over your ducky.
Peel the paper cup off of the silicone and discard. Carefully cut partway down two sides of the silicone to release the ducky from the mold.
Supplies needed to make the jelly soap:
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- One 1/4 oz. packet of unflavored gelatin
- 1/3 cup liquid soap
- Yellow soap colorant (if your liquid soap is not already yellow)
Stir the gelatin into the boiling water until it fully dissolves. Add in the liquid soap and soap colorant. Mix until well combined.
Place the silicone mold in a paper cup that is the same size as paper cup you used to make the mold. Pour the soap into the mold filling it up just to the top.
Allow the soap to harden. This usually takes a few hours at room temperature or about one hour in the freezer.
Carefully remove the jelly soap from the mold. Keep it in an airtight container when not in use.
Now that you have the mold made, you can reuse it to make as many ducky soaps as your heart desires! I think these soaps would be absolutely adorable party favors for a baby shower, don’t you?
