You’ll need one bar of Ivory soap; 1/4 cup water; 2 drops of food coloring; cookie cutters; and a strong kitchen grader. Finely grate the soap in a big bowl, add water and coloring. Mix well and spoon into cookie cutters.
Pack the mixture firmly and let dry overnight. You can also shape the soap into balls. Wrap in netting and tie up with a colorful ribbon. Extra: If you want your soaps scented, you can add a few drops of essential oil or soap scent. Most craft stores will carry these items.
