    Homemade bath crayons? Here's just 1 of the hundreds of great ideas on this family website "A Magical Childhood" It’s Bathtub Soap Crayons! We think bathtub time just got a whole lot more fun with this Bathtub Crayon craft recipe for kids. And, we bet kids will agree! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make Bathtub Soap Crayons! Craft supplies you will need: Clear glycerin soap base cut into cubes 3 or more soap color dyes (or food color dyes) Essential oils in your favorite smells (optional) Glass measuring cup for melting soap Spoons for mixing colors and fragrances Ice cube trays or round crayon molds Craft instructions: Separate the soap base cubes; one pile for each soap color dye. Have the children place the soap cube for the first color in a glass measuring cup and melt in microwave in short bursts. Once melted, have the children add soap color a drop at a time, mixing well after each drop until you get the color right. Then, add a couple of drops of essential oils and mix well. Next, have the children carefully pour the color soap into ice cube trays. If you see any air bubbles on the surface of the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol. Have the children repeat the same soap crayon making process with the rest of the colors. After that, allow the soap to set until it is firm. This could take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. When the soap is close to firm, feel free to place the soap in the freezer to speed up the hardening process.

You hot glue crayons around a half pint size canning jar. Tie on a ribbon and spray paint the lid black to represent a chalkboard. Glue on a school themed decoration for the top and fill with something sweet. (M's, Skittles, Hershey's Kisses, granola, jelly beans or whatever you like).
