    Contact: Children's Room   508-839-4649   
   

Getting little ones to wash their hands isn't always an easy task. That's sure to change after they create their own rubber duckie soap. This workshop is designed for grades K-5. Each participant will make their own soapy creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. The process does not involve traditional soap making techniques, so there is no lye exposure. Once the cocoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), choose from a variety of rubber duckies to embed and decorate the tops with white soap curls, creating waves. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade soap 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.
