What You Need:

  • empty (clean and dry) soap pump with label removed
  • felt or craft foam and scissors
  • pom-poms tacky
  • glue

What To Do:

1. Cut face shapes (eyes, mouth, hair) out of the felt or foam and glue them to the soap pump. Allow to dry.

2. Add other designs by gluing on pom-poms (such as a nose, hair, etc.). Allow to dry.

Tip: We used the bottle from Kiss My Face Kids’ Foaming Hand Wash — the label peels off easily and cleanly. Plus it’s nontoxic soap!
