Psst… have you read my soap making guide yet?! I included how to get started, plus some of my tips and tricks – learned from trial and error. 😉

Homemade Baby Shark Soap

Supplies Needed:

To make these baby shark soaps we decided to use individual molds in order to use a larger toy such as the squirter.

I mean…how could you pass a soap that also squirts water up?

If you balance your shark toy just right the toy will be able to squirt water while it is still in the soap! I found that balancing the shark’s nose against the edge of the silicone mold help keep the squirter from being submerged into the melt and pour soap base.

That said – a couple will most likely settle a little too much into the soap. If the shark toys settle down a little too far to where the squirter is covered, you could always just use that as a motivation for your child to use said soap 😉

This craft is really as simple as melt, mix, and pour. Your kids will have a blast doing this. And the best part? Unlike most soap recipes, this soap will be hardened in about 2 hours and ready for use!
