My son’s 4th birthday is next week and he has decided that he wants to combine all 3 of his passions: LEGO, superheroes and ice cream, into 1 awesome party.  So a “Superheroes Love LEGO & Ice Cream” party I’ll do.  Why not, you’re only 4 once, right?

I’m trying to keep this party small and easy.  Four year old’s don’t expect much so why go overboard!

I always try to include cute, practical stuff in the goody bags.  As if kids need more cheap plastic toys.

I have seen LEGO soap on Pinterest which I knew the boys would love.  But when I went to Michaels to buy the soap supplies I was shocked at the cost.  I would have to pay $3.99 per dye colour, plus the cost of the soap, soap mold and essential oil.  It would have added up to $50.  So instead I thought maybe I could just buy the soap ($9.99 used a 50% off coupon which made it $5.00) and 1 essential oil jar for $1.99.  I thought I could use a silicon muffin tin I had at home to make clear soaps with LEGO pieces floating inside. I really had no idea what I was doing but I thought for $7 I would give it a try.

And it worked!

Don’t you think?

LEGO Soap Instructions:

(Wow this picture makes the muffin tin look really dirty, I swear it didn’t look like that in person.  That’s kind of embarrassing).


  • 1 block of olive oil soap
  • essential oil
  • a handful of LEGO
  • a silicone mold (I used a muffin tin but you could also use a bread pan and just cut the soap into squares)

Total cost $7.00  and the block of soap made enough for 9 good size soaps.

Once soap is melted add 5 drops of essential oil per square that you melted. Stir.

I picked up these little cellophane bags at the dollar store (40 bags and the little ties for $1).  Wrapped each one up and we are done!  Easy peasy goody bag gift.

My boys LOVED these soaps.  It looks like I’ll be making another batch very soon.

Really the possibilities are endless with what you could add in here.  I’d love to hear some of your ideas…

Check out the LEGO crayons I made for $3.00.  Makes a great gift.

  1. Besides food, olive oil has been used for religious rituals, medicines, as a fuel in oil lamps, soap-making, and skin care application. The Minoans used olive oil in religious ceremonies. The oil became a principal product of the Minoan civilization, where it is thought to have represented wealth. The Minoans put the pulp into settling tanks and, when the oil had risen to the top, drained the water from the bottom.[
