How To Make Dinosaur Soap

Making your dinosaur soap is very easy to do and your little helpers will have a lot of fun working with you.

Prepare Melt And Pour Soup Base

Start by cutting about 15 ice cube sized pieces off the shea butter base block. Next, shred or cut the soap into smaller pieces to make it easier to melt. Place 1/3 of the soap in a microwave safe bowl or large glass measuring cup or batter bowl.
 

This part of the soap making dinosaur activity is best left to mom or an older child with supervision.
