Homemade Colored Bath Crayons

Bath time will never be the same again. Have a little good, clean fun with this recipe for homemade Bath Soap Crayons. This hands-on activity is easy and the results are quick, making it a must do for summer or a rainy day. Made with simple ingredients, our Homemade Bath Crayons give your little Monet the perfect creative outlet. Bathtime has never been so sweet!


  • 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
  • 8 ounces white glycerin melt-and-pour soap
  • food coloring


  1. Cut melt-and-pour soap into cubes and place in a double boiler. Cover with lid. 
  2. Remove from heat when melted, and mix in brown sugar and Vitamin E oil.
  3. Pour mixture equally into four small bowls.
  4. Add approximately 20-30 drops of color to each bowl and mix. The more coloring you use, the darker the crayons will be. 
  5. Pour mixtures into fun-shaped molds and let set. You can use any shape mold (many different shapes are found in craft stores). Use a thicker mold for little hands as the bath crayons will get slippery when wet.

Usage Suggestions:

  1. Test your homemade bath crayons on your bathtub and other surfaces before letting your kids go wild with them to make sure that the color does not stain. Plastic bathtubs have a tendency to stain more so than other surfaces.
  2. Avoid grouted areas with your colored bath crayons.
