Oreo Cookie Soaps
Here’s a fun DIY that will have the kids excited to wash up! I’m always looking for fun new projects and came across a video on YouTube from Toni Ellison. I was amazed at how realistic the soap came out, so I wanted to make this at home and share it with all of you. Ava loves this and it’s a great way to help encourage your kids to always wash their hands!
- Oreo Cookies
- Popsicle Sticks
- Oven Bake Clay in white/off white
- Black Food Coloring / Black Dye
- Silicone Mold Putty
- Sugar Cookie Fragrance / or Vanilla Extract
- Shea Butter Soap (or white soap base)
- Olive Oil Soap (or clear soap base)
- Vanilla fragrance, optional
Step 1: Use the Oven Bake Clay to form the “filling” for the Oreo Cookie. Form it into the exact shape of the real filling using the cookie as a guide.
Step 2: Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 275 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool and set aside – you’ll need it in a next step for the mold. You can make more than 1 clay piece for the filling if you’d like to make more than 1 cookie at a time.
Step 3: There are two types of putty included in the mold kit. Mix equal parts of the putties together. I divided the mixed putty into 4 balls in order to create 2 molds for the top of the cookie and 2 for the bottom piece. Form the putty around the cream filling clay and then around the top and bottom cookie pieces being careful not to crack the cookie. Make sure you do this while the mold is still soft, the longer you wait, the more the putty will start to set. It will take approximately 30 minutes to completely set.
Step 4: Melt the olive oil soap for about 15-30 seconds, or until completely melted, in the microwave. I used about 2 rows of soap to make 2 cookies.
Step 5: Add food coloring or dye to the melted olive oil soap, stir thoroughly. The food coloring will not dye your skin! Add about 10 drops of the vanilla fragrance at this point.
Step 6: Pour the mixture into the cookie mold. It should take about 15 minutes to set, or put in the fridge for faster results.
Step 7: Repeat step 4 using the Shea Butter soap. You should have enough soap with just 1 row.
Step 8: Repeat Step 6 using the melted Shea Butter soap.
Assembling the cookies!
Step 1: Remove the cookies and cream filling from the molds.
Step 2: Re-heat the Shea Butter soap as this will be the “glue” that holds the cookie together. Spread a thin layer on each side of the cookie.
Step 3: Add the cream filling to the center and press together.
Step 4: If there are any sharp points on the cream filling, smooth them out with a damp sponge or wet fingers.
You can do this with any kind of cookie! Just follow the same steps and adjust the food coloring accordingly!
Let the good, clean fun begin!!
