DIY Leprechaun Poop Soap Craft

Y’all, I am not even going to pretend that I’m proud that it came to this.

But here we are… talking about poop soap.

We all know that kids think anything poop themed is the best thing in the world. And some kids resist bath time and washing their hands like it’s a battle of the wills.

This… soap. Well, let’s just say the kids will think it’s so funny that they will be looking for excuses to use it.

I surprised the kids with these soaps on St Patrick’s Day and pretended to be super grossed out at the “present” that a little Leprechaun left for us. They found it hilarious and all insisted on washing their hands right away. All week long they practically ran to the sink with glee at any chance to wash their hands with the Leprechaun’s poop soap. Sigh.

The light chamomile lemongrass scent is refreshing and calming, making your bathroom smell like a spa. A nice consolation given the shape of the soaps that will be on display.

You can use this method for making glittery poop soap to make soaps for any occasion. Just swap out the colors (and maybe even add some scent) to make different themed poop soaps for different occasions, interests and holidays. I mean, if you find something that works, you roll with it, right? And you’re going to want to get your money’s worth after buying that poop soap mold (which can also be used to bake bread, cupcakes, mold Jell-O, etc).

Tip: If you do not have the poop mold I used, that is fine! You can use any mold you like and get the same layered effect. If so, you may need to adjust the amount of soap you use. The important thing is that you have fun!

How to Make St Patrick’s Day Soap

Dark Green (First) Layer

Add chamomile essential oil and lemongrass essential oil to one microwave safe measuring cup which has 8 cubes (each cube is approx. 1 ounce) of the clear melt and pour soap base. 

Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted. 

Add dark green mica powder and dark green cosmetic glitter to measuring cup and thoroughly mix into soap mixture.

Spray bottom of mold with rubbing alcohol.

Carefully pour dark green soap mixture into mold and spray the top of the soap mixture with alcohol to remove bubbles.

Allow to harden at least 30 minutes. You know you can pour the next layer if you blow on the soap and it doesn’t ripple

 

Light Green (Second) Layer 

Add chamomile essential oil and lemongrass essential oil to one microwave safe measuring cup which has 8 cubes (each cube is approx. 1 ounce) of the clear melt and pour soap base. 

Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted. 

Add light green mica powder and light green cosmetic glitter to measuring cup and thoroughly mix  into soap mixture.

Spray dark green layer with rubbing alcohol again. This helps the layers adhere to one another. Carefully pour light green soap mixture into mold. Spray light green layer with alcohol to remove bubbles. Allow to harden at least 30 minutes. Make sure there are no ripples when you blow on it. 

Gold (Third) Layer Steps 

Add chamomile essential oil and lemongrass essential oil to one microwave safe measuring cup which has 8 cubes (each cube is approx. 1 ounce) of the clear melt and pour soap base. 

Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted. 

Add gold mica powder and gold cosmetic glitter to measuring cup and thoroughly mix color and glitter into soap mixture.

Spray light green layer with rubbing alcohol. This helps the layers adhere to one another. Carefully pour gold soap mixture into mold. Spray gold layer with alcohol to remove bubbles.

Allow to harden at least 30 minutes. Make sure there are no ripples when you blow on it. 

Repeat the above steps in order of layers; dark green light green and gold. 

Allow to set overnight. Carefully “pop” the soaps from the mold. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
