Shark Soap Making for kids!

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Soap Making for Kids!

The Youth Room kicks off its celebration of Shark Week with a fun workshop for kids ages 6 & up & their grown-ups!

Each participant will make their own soapy creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. There is no lye exposure since the process does not involve traditional soap making techniques. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), embed the rubber shark bath toys, and decorate the tops with white soap curls. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade creation home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away.

Since the soap can get hot, a parent or guardian must be present for children under the age of 10 to lend a helping hand.
