How to Make Gem Stones Soaps Using our Super-easy Craft Kit

Did you know humans have made soap since the earliest days of civilization? Soap is extremely important, especially in today’s world. It’s not always easy to get your children on board with hand washing and teaching them how to do it right. However, our Gem Stones Soap Making Kit does just that, with fun included!

Our educational craft kit allows you to engage with your child over a simple bonding activity. It will also help your child develop crucial skills, like how to follow instructions and work together towards a shared goal. As an added bonus, our Gem Stones Soap Making Kit turns hand washing into a fun activity for all! Let's get started:

What’s included in your soap making kit:

  • Soap mold with different shapes
  • Easy to use melt-and-pour soap base
  • Fun color dyes

Other supplies you’ll need to complete this craft:

  • Chopping board and knife
  • Microwave-safe glass jug
  • Long spoon
  • Chopstick

Method #1: Using the Microwave

1) On your cutting board, cut two of the clear soap base bars into smaller cubes (we recommend 0.5” by 0.5"), which helps your soap base melt.

2) Place the soap cubes into your glass measuring cup.

3) Put your measuring cup into the microwave for 10 seconds. If the cubes haven’t melted, put it in for another 10 seconds. Make sure the soap doesn’t start to boil.

NOTE: Don’t put the plastic mold into the microwave, it will melt.

4) Carefully remove the measuring cup from the microwave and stir with a spoon.

5) Add 5 drops of color dye, a few drops of scent and some fun glitter (optional).

6) Carefully pour or spoon the melted soap into the mold shapes of your choice.

7) If you want to be more creative and make different color soaps, pour the clear soaps into the mold first, then add the dye colors after. Stir the colored soaps with a chopstick.

8) Let the soap cool and harden for 30 minutes.

9) Once cool, turn the mold over and gently pop the soap out. If the soap will not come out, place in the freezer for 15 minutes and try again. It’s that easy!

Method #2: Using the Stovetop/Double Boiler

1) In a medium saucepan, add 2 to 3 inches of water. Place a ceramic or glass bowl into the saucepan and immerse partially in the water.

2) Put the saucepan over low to medium heat.

3) Place soap blocks into the double boiler and gently stir with a long spoon.

4) As the soap melts, keep stirring. Make sure the soap doesn’t start to boil.


5) When the soap becomes liquid, remove the bowl from the saucepan.

6) Add 5 drops of color dye, a few drops of scent and some fun glitter (optional). Stir until the color becomes solid.

7) Carefully pour or spoon the melted soap into the mold shapes of your choice.


8) If you want to be more creative and make different color soaps, pour the clear soaps into the mold first, then add the dye colors after. Stir the colored soaps with a chopstick.

9) Let the soap cool and harden for 30 minutes.

10) Once cool, turn the mold over and gently pop the soap out. If the soap will not come out, place in the freezer for 15 minutes and try again. This method is just as easy as the microwave method.
