Melt & Pour Soap Making: Dino-Myte Soaps for Kids
These vinyl dinosaurs were a hit with my grand kids (ages 4, 6 and 9). Mold Market's duck pond mold makes a perfect base for these little guys. Color soap and allow it to set up. Then shred the soap with a cheese grater. Secure the grated soap to the (duck pond) base with clear melted soap. Dip bottom of dinosaur into the melted soap and seat on top.
These soaps fit our new cupcake cello bags BUT, you will want to first shrink wrap or stretch wrap the dino soaps before placing them in the bag. The soap tends to scuff the inside of the bag if the bag is moved around. The bottom of the duck pond fits nicely into the cupcake insert. Our cupcake boxes or flower top apple boxes might work as well though I haven't experimented with them.
