Kids and soap don't always have the best relationship. Just think about how many times you've asked your kids, "Did you remember to wash your hands?"
One way to get children more interested in the sudsy stuff is to involve them in the process of making soap from scratch. Plus, when you make your own soaps at home, you can feel confident they contain only safe, all-natural ingredients. The finished product can make a thoughtful holiday gift-one kids can proudly say they helped make.
The traditional soap-making process uses fats, water and lye (a dangerous chemical). When working with kids, I recommend using the safer and easier melt-and-pour method instead.
