Christmas Gifts Kids Can Make - DIY Soap Dough - DIY Soap Putty

This DIY Bubble Bath Soap Dough is the perfect craft for the 6th day of DIYs of Christmas! We’re halfway through!

You can play with it like a dough, but it’s also a soap! You can pinch off a tiny piece to wash your hands with it or use a bigger piece to make your bubble bath super bubbly! You can also use a little bit less cornstarch to make it more like silly putty! This is one of my favorite gift ideas for Christmas! Remember to use only scented oils for soaps!

You will need:

  • 1/4 cup Unscented Bubble Bath Liquid
  • 1/2 cup Corn Starch
    • more or less depending on how you want your dough
      • less = more silly putty like, softer
      • more  = more dough like, harder
  • Soap Coloring
  • Soap Fragrances
  • Soap Glitter (optional)
  • Measuring Cups
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spoon

Step 1:
Add your unscented bubble bath liquid to the bowl, then add in your colorant.

Step 2:
Pick a scent that you’d like and a couple of drops. Remember to use soap fragrance oils.  You don’t want to burn your eyes! You can also add soap glitter to make it shiny.  Do not use regular glitter as it can hurt your eyes/scratch your skin.

Step 3:
Mix it up the soap well! Then add your corn starch. Mix again.

Step 4:
When it’s pretty combined, use your hands to mix it until it turns into the dough.
