Super Squishy DIY Soap Dough

I have to be honest when I was given this task to make soap dough I wasn’t feeling it. Not that I thought I couldn’t because I love homemade dough. I just knew my youngest son with SPD would want to eat it and I needed to make sure that didn’t happen. Thankfully, he was happy to just smell and squish this DIY soap in his hands. It’s been a fun experience.

Everyone was excited about making homemade soap.

DIY Soap Dough Recipe:

1 cup Cornstarch

1/4 cup Organic Castile Liquid Soap (I make homemade Castile soap too – recipe coming soon)

1/4 cup Water

A few drops of color – We used Washable Liquid Watercolor paints because I try to use washable with kids and I like the vibrant colors. You can also use food coloring.   

Optional 2 Tablespoons Oil (Glycerine Vegetable, Coconut, Almond, other)

Optional 2-4 drops of essential oils (I added in Carrot Seed Oil because of all of the great benefits for your skin)

 

Directions:

Pour the cornstarch into a bowl

In a separate bowl add Castile soap, water, color (optional essential oils) and mix.

Pour your liquid into the bowl with cornstarch and mix.

Add optional oil and knead the soap dough so it’s well blended.

*The soap dough should feel soft and squishy but not wet or sticky. If you feel like it is to wet just add a pinch or two of cornstarch.

We made a couple of batches with different colors. After having fun playing with it we made them into pretty soap balls

This is how the inside of them turned out after we blended the colors together. Totally optional of course 🙂 But look at how much fun they are! If you have a child or friend that loves Tie Dye these would make perfect DIY gifts.
