Make it Yourself Monday-Bath Jelly

It is Monday again and time for you to make it yourself! This recipe makes for a fun bath time for your kids, grandchildren, or even you when you are in that childish mood! It is a bath jelly. If the phrase "slime" wasn't trademarked, it would describe this soap for sure! It is very easy and doesn't take much time either. Want to make it even more fun? Save some of the small play-dough containers and use those as containers for this soap!

You will need;
transparent melt and pour soap (you can get this at many craft stores or on line)
distilled water
knox gelatin
fragrance (either essential oils or fragrance oil)
colorant (either soap coloring or natural colorants)

Microwave or heat the distilled water to boiling. Pour the gelatin into a large bowl and then pour the boiling water over it. Stir it well, until it is all dissolved. Melt the melt and pour soap in the microwave. When it is melted, add in the fragrance or essential oil of your choice (be sure to only add the recommended amount for the weight of the soap you are using). Stir it gently, but thoroughly. Pour the mixture into individual containers and color each container a different color. Make sure to use only the recommended amount of colorant or you may end up with a green kid! When you are all finished, place the containers (without the lids) in the refrigerator until they are set. Once set, remove from the frige and cover with the lids.
