Jesus Washes The Disciples Feet

Posted on

In this Bible story we see Christ humble Himself and give us a perfect example of how we should humble ourselves and serve others. At the same time the washing of the disciples feet reminds us of our need for our sins to be washed away by Christ.

What better way to make sure your kids remember this story then by having them make their very own soap.

Every time they wash up they will be reminded of Christ’s act of humility and the need to have their sins forgiven.

Jesus Washes The Disciples Feet

Materials

  • 1 Ivory Bar, One Bar Will Be Enough For Two To Three Kids
  • Small Plastic Containers

Instructions

  1. Cut a fresh Ivory bar into two to three pieces.
  2. Place the pieces of soap onto a microwavable plate.
  3. Heat the soap for 1 to 1.5 minutes. (The water molecules in the soap will begin to heat up and the soap will begin to inflate.)
  4. Allow the inflated soap to cool.
  5. Divide the inflated soap between the two to three kids.
  6. Have them crumble the inflated soap and place the pieces/powder into a small plastic container.

Your kids can place the container next to their sink at home.

 

Melt And Pour Soap– (Not Too Difficult; Requires One Day To Make)

Materials

  • Melt And Pour Base, Can Be Purchased On Amazon Or Craft Stores
  • Colorants (Colored Mica Powder Or Iron Oxides; Make Sure They Are Skin Safe) Or Look Up Natural Soap Colorants
  • Additives (Oatmeal, Poppy Seeds, Dried Flower Petals, French Clay, Vitamin E Oil, Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, Body Glitter)
  • Small Plastic Containers Or Silicone Molds (Silicone Works Best)
  • Rubbing Alcohol, In A Small Spray Bottle
  • Plastic Spoons
  • Plastic Bowls

Instructions

  1. Melt the melt and pour base in a microwavable container in 30 second burst until completely melted.
  2. Divide the melt and pour base between your kids into small plastic bowls, just enough to fill in their small plastic containers or silicone molds.
  3. Allow your kids to add a colorant and additives to their melt and pour base. Be careful with the additives and colorants, a little goes a long way. (If the soap starts to thicken before you are finished mixing in the colorants and additives, heat the soap base in the microwave for another 30 seconds.)
  4. Pour each child’s finished melt and pour base into their individual small plastic container or silicone mold.
  5. Spray a couple of squirts of rubbing alcohol on the top of the soap in order to pop all of the bubbles that have formed on the top of the soap.
  6. Allow the soap to harden completely. This can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes depending on the brand of melt and pour base that you have purchased.

  3. Pour the liquid soap into a container or bowl, allow it to sit at room temperature for 6 to 12 hours or overnight. (Up to this point, you can do this at home and then let your kids finish the project in class. This way it will become a one day project.)
  4. After the liquid soap has had time to rest mix up the mixture using a whisk, a blender, an emulsion blender or have some fun and use your hands.
  5. Divide the liquid soap between your kids into small plastic bowls, just enough to fill in their travel size shampoo bottle.

You can have your kids design their own labels to stick onto their shampoo bottles.

Paul Lowered In A Basket

Posted on Updated on

“10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me” 2 Timothy 3:10-11
