Heart Shaped Soap

Do you sometimes find your bath time is a little boring ?  I do sometimes. 

To help make bath time more fun, here is a great idea to make a soap that you can have fun and wash with.

It is also very silky and smells really, really good! 



  • ¾ cup of cornstarch
  • ½ cup of body gel soap
  • ½ tbsp. of olive oil
  • Food coloring
  • 1 big bowl
  • Plastic wrap


  • Put the cornstarch in the bowl
  • Add a little bit of soap at a time (you may not need to use it all)
  • Mix well with your hands


  • If the dough becomes too sticky, add a little more cornstarch. If the dough is too grainy, add a little more soap
  • Once your dough is perfect, add the olive oil
  • Mix it well


  • Separate the dough into two balls
  • Press a hole (not all the way through) in the middle of each ball
  • Add 2 to 4 drops of food coloring
  • Mix it well


  • Make a heart shape with each ball of dough
  • Wrap your new creations in the plastic wrap


It’s bath time! Wow, that smells really good!

If you add water to your soap it will become stickier and melt.  You can now create new forms!  

Have fun !


I hope you had fun making this activity with me!

Come back soon!
