This is such a fun activity for kids of all ages! It is easy to make and allows kids to use lots of creativity. We used this Soap Craft for Kids after our Sunday School Lessons on Jesus healing a leper.
Jesus Healing a Leper
Kids from Preschool and Kindergarten to 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade are going to love this fun, simple project. Kids can use their creativity to mold the soap as they like. With all the extra soap pieces you may want to try this FUN Soap Science Experiment for Kids.
Soap Craft for Kids
For this fun, simple craft all you need is a bar of ivory soap (about $0.30 each), a plastic knife, and small cookie cutters if you like.
Ivory soap works best because not only is it cheap, but it is easy to cut, carve, and rearrange.
Use your finger to gently smooth out the brand name.
To make a 3D carving just press the cookie cutter in. Then use your knife to cut out some of the soap surrounding the cookie cutter to make a nice flat surface.
The possibilities with this project are endless! You can completely cut out the shape, carve the soap, or make a 3D image on the soap.

We used this soap craft along with our Sunday School Lesson from Mark 1:40-45 where we talked about how Jesus healed a leper.
Soap cleanses us from dirt. Jesus cleanses us from sin. Who can take away our sin? Jesus can and wants to cleanse us from sin.
