Superhero Soaps

   In our family, we have been blessed with nothing but boys and they love wrestling, running around, riding their bikes, and pretending to be superheroes. Now that my boys are older, they enjoy being superheroes on their favorite video games. Recently, I was asked by a friend to come up with some fun party gift ideas for her nephew’s birthday party. Since I’ve made DIY soaps before, I thought it would be fun to make superhero soaps for all the kids.

Superhero Soaps

  • 1-2 lb. clear glycerin soap block (I purchased mine at a local arts and crafts store but they are readily available on Amazon)
  • 4-5 drops of essential oil in your favorite scent (optional)
  • Superhero erasers
  • Square soap molds

  • Cut the glycerin into small chunks using a sharp knife and place in a 2 cup microwave safe glass measuring cup.
  • Microwave the glycerin in 1 minute increments, stirring until completely melted.
    If using essential oil, add 4-5 drops and stir.
  • Fill each square soap mold 1/2 way with melted glycerin.
  • Let set for 20 minutes.

  • Place the superhero erasers face down in the soap molds on top of the set glycerin.
  • Fill with remaining glycerin (You may need to re-melt in the microwave)
  • Let the soap set for at least 1 hour.
  • Gently pop out of the molds.

    As you can imagine, all of the kids were thrilled with their superhero soaps. The parents at the party were happy too because they hope the soaps will inspire their kids to spend more time on their personal hygiene during bath time. That is just a little bit of humor for those of us who know how some kids dread taking baths. Maybe I’ll put some in our shower too to inspire our teen and pre-teen!

Let’s Discuss: What event do you think these superhero soaps would be perfect for?

  6. Oh these are so perfect for my son. He loves superheroes.

  7. Love this idea! They turned out great! I will definitely be trying this with my son.

  8. These are super cool, my problem is my son would now want yo wash his hands 50 times just to use it lol. Love the idea, very creative.

  9. This is super cool. My kids will love this. I love everything about DIY products and especially if there are involved with essential oils. I love them and use it every day. I have purchased a starter pack a few months back and loving them since. Great post!

    These would make great small gifts for Christmas! I am going to get supplies to start “practicing” until I perfect this project. Thanks for sharing! Love it!

  15. Great idea that would appeal to many boys. Definitely a good strategy to get them to look forward to bath/shower time more!

  16. What a fun idea!! I’ve never thought of it. Sounds easy and fun!! Thank you for sharing!

  17. I haven’t made soap in such a long time when I was in high school. This looks like it would be a lot of fun though. I wonder if my daughter would love to make them as gifts. Very nice.

  18. This looks fun! I can see some very interesting possibilities. There are so many themes.

  19. This is so great! Boy scan be so playful to the extent of overlooking their hygiene so superhero soaps is just the best gift to the,. At least they’ll be reminded to always keep clean.

  20. Those are really great. I love superhero anything, even better if it’s enticing the kids to get clean. 😉

  21. What a fun craft! I know some kids who would have the best time with this.

  22. What an awesome AND useful activity. I wish I had known about this when my kids were young. Great souvenirs and rainy day activity.

  23. Oh, wow I love these superhero soaps! Never thought of putting in erasers but this would be a great way to conserve the look of the superheroes as opposed to paper and such. Great concept!

  24. What a fun idea to make them superhero styled! Fun to use and fun to make! My boy will go crazy for these, he is at that age where everything is super here.

  25. These are so cute. I have never heard of super hero soaps before. My nephews will love this.

  26. This is a very clever way to get your kids to use bathing soaps. In this way, they will enjoy bathing and will learn more about personal hygiene. Can I get one of those too?

  27. I don’t even have kids but I want to make these for myself! It looks so easy and fun! Do you know if the erasers still work as well after the soap gets used up?
