Creepy Soap

The kids didn’t have school yesterday, so we made some Halloween crafts.  First we made creep soap, or as my almost 18 month old calls them “scary”


My mom had given me this hunk of clear soap, so we decided to use it for our project.  All you have to do is melt it in the microwave.  Then you add any color or scent you want.


She had also given me some soap dye and some soap sent.  So we used those too.


We found some severed body parts and the Dollar Store, we also used a severed finger mold and some plastic spiders, bats, rats etc.


We put the severed body parts into a muffin pan, and then covered them with the soap.  Some parts we covered completely, and some we left a bit of them showing.


Then you let them harden, it actually doesn’t take that long.


The kids love, them and they can’t seem to stop washing their hands Smile 

We also made some Halloween bows for the girls. I found these little guys, on clearance last year @ Michaels and I thought that they would make perfect bow centers, so I got a  pack of them for about 40 cents.


I wanted to find some ribbon that wasn’t just the typical black and orange.  I love how this one turned out!


And we did do some that were black and orange.


We had a pretty great day.
