Soon to be part of the Soap Pixie line of products for kids.

Supplies needed:

melt and pour soap
small suction cups
two popsicle sticks

1. first, remove the metal holder from the suction cups.

2. rub a little oil in your mold (I do this in my plastic molds so it is easier to remove the soap once it hardens)

3. cut a few chunks of melt and pour (amount you melt will depend on the size of mold you will be using).

4. place the chunks in a bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 - 40 seconds (just long enough to liquify the M&P)

5. remove from microwave and add color and fragrance (to your liking)

6. pour the melted soap into mold of choice.

7. place the popsicle sticks across each mold and embed the suction cups into the soap. The sticks hold the sides of the suction cups so that they don't slip all the way into the soap.

8. once the soap has hardened you can remove them from the mold.

My girls are 2,9 and 13. They all get a kick out of these "stick up" soaps. As with most suction cups you may need to moisten the back a little to get them to hold, depending on the surface they are stuck to. Bathroom tile should have no residue or else suction cups don't adhere well.

If you and your grandchildren create these Carrie, I'd love to hear about it. The kids think they are a hoot. It made my 2 year excited about her bath :)

Very adorable idea! That makes it harder to loose the soap!

I love this idea. It's VERY creative and perfect for kids!

Thanks ladies! The kids are enjoying them. and definitely a good way not to lose soap. My now 3 year old would drop soap in the tub and we do bubble baths so it was always a challenge to find the soap. Now she's trained to stick the soap to tile when she's done :)

I have been interested in trying to add bath scents, but was scared it would take the natural element out!
