Fish In A Bag Soap

 This was a little classroom craft I did for Dr. Seuss week this year. The kids loved being able to take their own little "Fish Soap in Bags" home with them. The idea was derived from the book "The cat in the Hat Comes Back".
 We started with clear cellophane bags, clear glycerin soap, and plastic goldfish from the party store. If you'd like complete instructions on melting the soap and putting it into the bags with the fish, watch this tutorial on However we did not opt to spray the inside of the bags with rubbing alcohol like Martha did, because we thought the bubbles in the soap were appropriate for this particular project. We also used much less soap in each bag than what the tutorial suggests.
This is an excerpt from the book that I decided to attach to each bag.

The finished project!

It lathers nicely!
