Overview

Melt-and-pour soapmaking is the perfect easy and safe craft for kids, and this is the ideal guide to teach them how to do it. All the basics are covered to ensure "sud-sational" success, and 56 fun projects and nearly 300 colorful photos add to the appeal.

Add fragrance, color, or other pizzazzy extras, such as pearlescent powder, shimmery cosmetic grade glitter, crushed dried flower petals, or herbs. Children will have a blast getting wacky with gross-out eyeball soaps, making soap popsicles complete with a wooden stick, getting happy with smiley faces, fashioning a soapasaurus, or cooking up "alphabet soap." Great gift ideas include a Best Friend Soap Bracelet or clear bar with a photo embedded for Grandma. Plus, there are cool soap facts throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What a wild, visual impact this book has! A pile of brightly colored bars of soap sitting upon a pile of bubbles starts off this fun and fantastic craft book. From the really explosive neon colors of "alphabet soap" to the muted, natural beauty of the "layered herb loaf," there's something for everyone (truly, the suggested projects are equally as attractive to boys as they are to girls). An introduction to soap making that is clear but not clinical starts off the fun. Buying a soap base is the one absolutely necessary purchase (although fragrance, coloring, pearlescent powder and cosmetic grade glitter sure jazz it up). Instructions that list "what you need" and enumerate "what to do" along with plenty of pictures explain the projects in detail. With a little imagination, interesting molds can be found around the house, such as a latex glove (think Halloween!), a popsicle mold or muffin tin lined with cupcake wrappers! Little toys can be encased in the soap, as can a picture of a child, pet or anything! Loaf soaps are popular among organized groups to make and sell at fundraisers. The possibilities are endless! A twelve-year-old girl shares her experience starting her own soap making business at the end of the book. There is also a troubleshooting guide and a metric conversion chart. Recommended. The "Kids' Crafts" series aims to provide an introduction to different crafts in an enjoyable way while fostering personal creative expression for children ages 8 to 14 (but would be appropriate for many adults as well). 2003, Lark Books/Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 8 to 14.

School Library Journal
Gr 3-8-This book has a wonderful, "squeaky-clean" appearance and a perfect combination of text, color photography, design, and child models. A precious little dog also appears frequently in comical situations. Major sections include "Great Gifts," "Animals," "Good Enough to Eat," and "Tub Fun." Step-by-step instructions are exceptionally clear. Safety concerns are mentioned as projects involve a microwave oven, sharp knife, rubbing alcohol, etc. Aside from a few general supplies, most items can be purchased at pharmacies, natural food stores, and craft stores. Children will love the dog bone, snowman, gross eyeballs, soaposaurus, etc. They will also find themselves educated and entertained as to the intricacies of soaps and soapmaking from an explanation of the various supplies needed, sidebars on soaps with special properties, and "trivia bubbles." A pleasing color chart is labeled according to the sensations/emotions that the hues convey. This welcome activity book will surely please children and the adults who work with them.-Augusta R.
