We’ve been having a lot of fun with Star Wars crafts recently. Like many children, The Force Awakens really seems to have struck a chord with my two and now they are Star Wars obsessed. My son recently bought the Lego Carbon-Freezing Chamber set I thought I would turn this to my advantage with an easy DIY Star Wars Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Soap craft activity!
DIY Star Wars Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Soap
You will need:
2x disposable plastic containers
Han Solo plastic figure
How to make a DIY Star Wars Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Soap:
First melt your soap base by cutting it into small pieces. Place them in a disposable plastic tub and melt for 10 seconds at a time in a microwave. Use a wooden stirrer to ensure everything is mixed and melted.
The soap can start to harden and form a skin so you need to work quickly. If you are going to add any colour do it now as you can’t re-heat the soap when you have added anything to it.
I didn’t want to add anything so poured a small amount of the soap base into the other plastic container and left it to harden for a couple of minutes.
I re-heated the soap base, placed my Han Solo figure into the soap layer and poured more soap on top until it was completely covered.
I left the soap to harden overnight and the next day tipped the container over and the finished soap fell out.
My son turns 6 next month so I thought this would make a fun handmade gift for him to open, alongside all his other Star Wars gifts.
