Now, grated, there isn’t a TON of any one color of clay, but the selection of colors was great- little girl just couldn’t wait to dig in and play. We opened the first package of “soap clay” and found that it had the texture of a “cloud clay” or puffy clay- very soft and silky to the touch, with barely a trace of residue on the hands. Actually, it was fun to handle.
There was also a light fragrance to it- not overpowering, but noticeable, and I can only describe it as flowery, and totally appropriate for a bath product.
The instructions are pretty general, with “recipes” on how to make your “cupcakes.” My budding “chef” did a great job of following the pictures and making her goodies. Then she packaged her creation in the cupcake liner and storage bubble. It’s OH-so-cute!
What a sweet treat! I mean, the craft is fun- but the presentation is awesome! She started making plans for making more and giving them as gifts.
The next one we got a bit more creative. I made a butterfly out of soap soÂ little girl could copy & make one of her own.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable craft for both of us- fun clay, good smelling, and clean-up was a snap! We’ve also been using a “cupcake soap” in our guest room for months now and it’s working fine. It will get a little gummy on the bottom, so make sure you have a little dish to put it on.
The Create-Your-Own-Cupcake-Soap kit retails for $19.99, is available online and in some craft and big-box stores. I’d say that it’s a great value, and it would be a marvelous birthday or holiday gift. I’d love to see a “refill” kit available with more clay, liners, and bubble containers- but I may just go ahead and spring for another whole kit to tuck into an Easter basket.
Disclosure: I bought it with my own money, and it was well worth it!
