Homemade Soap Crayons Recipe

One ice cube tray
Liquid food color
2 tbsp. hot water for each crayon
1 c. soap flakes
Small bowl

For each color, put two tablespoons of hot water and one cup of soap flakes into a bowl.

Add as many drops of food color to the mixture as you wish.

Stir the soap mixture until it thickens. This takes time, so be patient!

Press spoonfuls of the first color of soap into the sections of the ice tray.

Mix enough soap in the other colors to fill the ice tray, following the above directions again.

Let the soap crayons dry for one or two days.

Gently bang the ice tray to loosen the crayons.

Pack them in a box for gift-giving.

Great for birthday presents or holidays.
