bar of soap
Have a parent or an adult help with this craft. Unwrap the soap and let sit out overnight. Make a simple pattern of a large object or animal and draw onto the bar of soap. Help the child to carve out the soap using small cuts and scrapes. Make sure to use a knife with no sharp edges or tips. Do the carving over a tray or newspaper to avoid extra messes!
