To be honest, I never really knew what a frozen fractal was until the movie Frozen came out. Frozen fractals are complex little frozen structures that have a repeated geometric pattern. All complicated definitions aside, they are so fun thanks to the movie we all love! My kids and I recently made our own Frozen Fractals Soap and I can’t wait to show you how easy this beautiful soap tutorial is.
Frozen Fractals Soap
These are single-use soap pieces, which means you and your kids use the soap once and, either the whole thing dissolves in the sink while you’re washing your hands, or you can toss out the little bit left (whatever works best for you!). This makes them perfect for gift giving!
Melt a few cubes of melt and pour soap (found HERE) according the directions (usually about 5-10 seconds with stirring). Color the snowflakes blue with a tiny bit of food coloring. Pour a very thin layer melted mixture onto the surface of a glass plate.
Perfect for any Frozen lover! Frozen fractals single-use soap pieces are so unique! Each snowflake piece is intended for 1 use, which makes them perfect for washing hands (and stuffing in stockings).

- Use spoon to stir up the melted soap. You only need a teeny tiny amount of blue food coloring for this project. A little goes a long way and, as long as you only use a tiny bit, it will not show when using the soap. If you made it too blue, add in some additional melt & pour cubes until the light blue hue is achieved.
- Add in 5-10 drops of peppermint fragrance oil.
- Pour a very thin layer melted mixture onto the surface of a glass plate.
- Quickly sprinkle a little extra fine glitter over the top of the melted soap.
- Allow the soap to dry completely dry (about 10 minutes).
- Using a snowflake cookie cutter, cut out frozen fractals just like you would cut out cookie dough!
- Each frozen fractal soap will last for about 1 hand wash and will foam up then wash down the drain.
