Soap by 8yr Old Jillian

  • Sharebar

Rarely do we do a lot of self-promotion here, but this one I’ve just got to brag on. My daughter Jillian has been working SO hard on her soaps the past few weeks, and I believe she deserves this little nudge.

Over the weekend she was super excited to attend her first craft show over Thanksgiving weekend (she had a few soaps out among our candles) where she did in fact make a few sales. This was one happy little girl to make her first sale that wasn’t a family member! She’ll be going with us again to a craft show in December where I hope she’ll make even more sales.

Since finally “breaking out” and selling a few, she’s come up with some new soaps that I think are absolutely ADORABLE. Same molds as she’s been using, but this time with a new design. She calls them “tie-dye soaps”. (See picture below of the hearts)

She just did these tonight in two batches. The first was in blue/green in “Mystic Woods” scent. The second was in pink/blue (which looks mostly purple with a marbled look) in “Princess” scent. Both these scents have a nice perfume-like fragrance, and all the soap is currently Goats Milk (our favorite!)

We’re getting them up on her Etsy store a little at a time. I’m nudging her to make me more of her Almond Oatmeal soap as well (almond scent with real oatmeal mixed in), so hopefully we’ll have a few of those up by the end of the week. We also got her a “regular shaped” mold, so she can get creative with her designs. The kid is just bursting with ideas, and I couldn’t be more proud. :)

    That is wonderful news! I love it when the kids get creative and want to get involved with things like this. They can benefit in so many ways. They learn how to create new things, spend their time wisely, make money and now with you adding things to the Etsy store, she will learn how to sell online as well.

    We should always encourage our children in their creative endeavors. I have always tried my best to do that as well. I have a 21 year old who is amazing at art and an 18 year old who is good at making small games for iphones and such.

    If you spend the time to encourage and work with them, they stay safe and out of trouble. I have a 2 year old and 4 year old and I look forward to the time when I can start to help them explore their talents as well.

    Thank you for this encouraging read! Tell your daughter to keep up the good work and her soaps are beautiful. I like the sounds of the oatmeal one as well, and if you post a copy of the etsy store link, I would like to take a look.

    sorry to post again. I just realized that you have her soaps up on the sidebar for her Etsy shop. Going over there now!

    Thank you for your reply! Yes, she is learning a lot! When we went to the craft show, she learned how to count back change ($8.50 purchase, and she was handed a $10, so I was glad it was simple to start with). She’s also learning how to save money and put what she makes back into the business in the form of new molds and more supplies.

    I will be sure to tell her how great she’s doing! Thank you!
