Carving is not just for pumpkins! My daughter loved carving bars of soap into anything she wished and she loved using her special soap afterwards.

How We Did It

Soap Carving

We had some old pumpkin carving tools that worked well for this. We also found that sharpening one side of a popsicle stick on the ground makes for a great tool.

First, Emma used a pencil to draw her image into the soap.

She chose a flower. For younger kids, shapes with little details are the best for this craft.

Next, she began to scrape away soap from around the flower. She was collecting all of her soap scraps as she did this. I think they ended up in her mud pie kitchen outside. Nothing wasted! I like that!

I think she did a great job and she couldn't wait to use her fancy new soap.

What a sweet gift this would make for Grandma or anyone special!
