Make Bathtime Fun: DIY Soap Jellies

Today I have a super-fun craft for DIY Soap Jellies. These slippery jelly soaps are made from simple ingredients that you may already have in your bathroom or pantry, and the kids will not only have fun making them, but also using them in their next bath or shower.

They use your favorite body wash along with some gelatin to make the jelly soap, and you can pick up some soap colorings if you want to make fun colors. You can use just about anything to mold them into any shape, but if you have a silicone mold, that will make it much easier to get them out.

WARNING: Not a food, keep away from small children!



  1. Mix your packet of unflavored gelatin with one cup of cold water.

  2. Pour your water and gelatin mix into a small pot and hear on medium-high for about 3-4 minutes until your gelatin is fully dissolved.
  3. Take your pot off the heat and mix in your shower gel.

  4. Carefully pour your soap mixture into your silicone molds.
  5. Place a small amount of your soap colorant on the end of a tooth pick or skewer and mix each mold individually if you want a few colors.

  6. Spray with your rubbing alcohol to get rid of any bubbles. 
  7. Place in the fridge for 4 hours.

  8. Carefully pull on the sides of the mold and push up on the bottom to remove your shower jellies from the molds.
  9. To use: rub all over your body just like you would a bar of soap and rinse! 

I hope you have fun making and using these DIY Soap Jellies. If you like DIY bath and body projects, check out my Mommy & Me Homemade Spa Day Series here.
