Even though cold and flu season is almost over, I still keep encouraging my kids to wash their hands frequently throughout the day. They hate it. I made up a batch of DIY colorful squishy soap to make washing up more fun. The soap is mold-able like play dough, but it still works to clean grubby little hands. This is a perfect project to do with bored kiddos on Spring Break too. Grab a few inexpensive ingredients and make some of your own!
Watch this video to see how to make your own squishy soap. I put out two new videos each week. If you aren’t subscribed to my YouTube channel, you are missing out on the fun!
I stored ours in a mason jar so that it doesn’t dry out in between uses. You could even make this in larger batches to give as classroom gifts or party favors!
Don’t miss my Spring jar crafts from Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4!
