With British Science Week upon us, the sets from Wild! Science are perfect for children to experiment with various things and come up with some fun creations. We’ve been trying out the Wild! Science Cake Soap Factory and I’m amazed at some of the fun edible looking soaps Miss M has come up with. If you do try out one of the Wild! Science kits then be sure to keep your receipt as there is a chance to win a fabulous competition to Orlando Florida!
The set includes everything you need to make the soaps from transparent soap blocks, pigment soap blocks, colours, stirring sticks, glitter, 2 plastic measuring beakers, piping bag & nozzles and of course a cake shaped mould tray.
9yr old Miss M was eager to get started and we found the instructions simple to follow and carry out. You simply put various amounts of blocks of glycerine soap and pigment into a beaker and melt it in the microwave. Once in liquid form you can add drops of colouring and stir in, then before it turns to a solid again, quickly pour it into the moulds to set. We repeated this process several times making different colours and multiple cake pieces.
Miss M’s favourite part was whisking up some water with liquid soap to form a foamy soap which can be piped between or on top of cakes to represent cream. This was great fun but you have to work quickly before it sets.
Aren’t the finished soaps beautiful? In fact we think they look good enough to eat although of course they won’t be very tasty!
The Wild! Science Cake Soap Factory is a fantastic educational set in which you can experiment with liquids and solids. It is fun to use and has been thoroughly enjoyed by my 9yr old who can’t wait to use her new soaps in the bath and shower.
