Children, use nontoxic, Nontearing formulas)
Food coloring (optional)

Add this ‘jelly” to your bathwater for a really invigorating and cleansing experience. Kids especially love this bubbly treat. Create a “Bathtime Basket” to give to your children: Fill a plastic bucket with tubs Of bath jelly and include different shaped sponges, an animal nailbrush, bath bubbles and fruit-scented soaps. Make a bath puzzle by cutting up a plastic
place mat when wet the shapes will stick to the tile walls of your tub or shower.

Heat the water until just boiling and dissolve the gelatin in it. This may take 1-2 minutes. Add the soap and stir slowly. Do not beat or the soap will become foamy. Pour the mixture into a plastic container with a lid and drop a small plastic toy or seashell inside as a hidden “surprise.” Place in the refrigerator until set (firm like gelatin). To use: Place a small amount of jelly under the running tap or use as skin cleanser the tub or shower.
