Hatching a Crocodile Soap Egg
I love all the quick videos for food and DIY projects on Facebook , I get sucked into watching them all the time. It’s the rabbit hole of Facebook I guess. I spotted this video for “Hatch Your Own Dinosaurs With These Awesome DIY Dino Egg Soaps” and really wanted to make at least one of them for my 4-year-old. I didn’t use the dye like they did and I added some essential oils because essential oils make everything better if you ask me. Go ahead and watch their video, it’s really fun and gives all the details of what you need.
So here how it happen in our house
I had everything I needed already since I make all of my own personal care products and just dug around in the closet and found some of this years easter eggs . Our eggs are definitely on the bigger size and took a little more glycerin soap than the average size egg would. (probably double) We also didn’t have any Dino’s but you can pick any kind of fun small toy to add in there as long as it fits of course.
We had fun deciding who was going to become part of our soap experiment
The recipe doesn’t give an exact amount of soap so you have to guess how much you need.
I added a drop of Thieves and a drop of Tea tree essential oil after I melted the soap but before I add the Crocodile.
Here he is hanging out during the first hour of setup time. The frog isn’t sure yet if he’s glad he wasn’t picked or not.
Having a little fun playing with him before we finished the project.
Headed into part 2 of the setting time . This part was 2 hours of letting it set.
tick tock, tick tock….This was the boring part
and here he is all Hatched!
My son enjoyed playing with him in his bath this afternoon. I did have to search him down for a few minutes since the boy totally thought he was a toy and had in his room.
