Supplies: 
  • 1 moisturizing soap bar
  • 5 tablespoons uncooked oatmeal
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • Cheese grater
  • Cookie cutters (any shape and size)
  • Baking tray
  • Wax paper
  • Food processor, or rolling pin
  • Plastic zip-top sandwich bag
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Tissue paper (optional)
  • Ribbon or yarn (optional)
Instructions: 
  1. Put wax paper on a baking tray, and arrange the cookie cutters on the wax paper.
  2. Using a cheese grater, shred the soap bar into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Crush up the oatmeal using a food processor. You can also put the oatmeal in a zip-top plastic bag, and use a rolling pin to crush it.
  4. Stir the water into the shredded soap flakes, and microwave for approximately 15 seconds until the soap is liquefied.
  5. Add the crushed oatmeal to the liquefied soap, and stir until evenly combined. Be careful - soap will be very hot.
  6. Pour the soap mixture into the cookie cutters, and set aside to cool and harden.
  7. Once soap is completely cooled and solid, push the newly shaped soap bars out of the cookie cutter molds.
  8. Wrap the soap bars up in tissue paper and ribbon, and give as a sweet-scented, useful homemade gift!
