This DIY Shopkins soap is perfect for kids who need a reminder to wash their hands. Which by my calculations is almost all kids including my daughter Kayla. Nothing makes you feel like an older more boring version of yourself than constantly shouting “Did you wash your hands?” across the house every time you hear a toilet flush.
So I decided to make a little reminder for Kayla to wash her hands. A Shopkins reminder because nothing seems to get her attention quite like Shopkins.
My DIY Shopkins soap is probably the easiest thing you can make. I’ve seen people stick Shopkins into bars of soap which is adorable and creative but honestly, bar soap grosses me out. Especially when you see it sitting there as the communal soap at a party. To make this Shopkins soap all I did was find a foaming liquid soap with an easy to remove bottle label and add some Shopkins.
I checked out more bottles of hand soap than I would like to admit to figure out which ones would work for this DIY Shopkins soap and the best that I found was the foaming hand soap from Trader Joe’s. So if you have a Trader Joe’s near you, grab it there. It’s an shrink wrap wrapper rather than a sticky sticker which leaves residue if you remove it. And if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you then I send my condolences. That stinks.
Grab any Shopkins you like. Since Kayla has amassed an embarrassingly large collection (Hello, enabler!) I found some toiletry related Shopkins and used those. The idea is simply to catch your child’s attention as a reminder to wash their hands without you having to be the prompt.
