      I would like to know this also. I tried it and it did not turn out. It was
      about the same recipe.

      They are so expensive, but alot of fun that I can
      remember from being a child.

      I’m not sure who I got this recipe from, but am thinking it might’ve been from
      someone in this group… I made these and from what I can remember, followed
      the instructions (except didn’t put into the ice cube trays, just kind of shaped
      into squares)… only thing I can think is maybe the ‘dough’ wasn’t thick
      enough…

      but how could I make it ‘thicker’ – any ideas? It seemed really
      sticky — kind of like a cookie dough…
      Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have about 5 bars of soap shredded
      and would really like to make these for nieces and nephews for Christmas!!
      Thanks so much for any ideas/suggestions/etc…
      (I hope this isn’t too off-topic — am very sorry if it is… feel free to
      e-mail me off list jfredrick@morcomm.net)

      Bathtub Crayons
      Use at bath time to color your tub or yourself!
      1 cup of grated Ivory soap
      (boxed flakes are no longer available)
      6-10 drops of food coloring
      1/4 cup of warm water
      ice cube tray
      In a bowl, combine the soap, water and food coloring.

      Stir together until
      the mixture begins to thicken. Remove and knead on a protected surface until
      the mixture resembles a thick dough. Press pieces into the ice cube trays.
      Place in the freezer for 15 mins.
      Pop out of the trays and harden overnight.
      Variations:
      We also used fun soap molds and cookie cutters to make animals, flowers,
      shapes, etc.
      Combine crayons with a fun shaped sponge and a rubber duck for a toddler gift!
