We have a very weird sense of humor in our family, so it’s really no surprise that reindeer poop makes an appearance around the holidays. After all, what fun is Christmas without a little potty humor, right?

I’m guessing that if you’re searching for reindeer poop recipes, you, too, have a slightly mischevious side, so we’ll get along great. =)

How to Make Reindeer Poop Soap

Making the soap isn’t as hard as you may think. For this DIY you’ll need:

When we’re making soap, I always make sure that the measuring cups and spoons that we used are separated from our regular utensils. If you’ll be making other soaps, it’s a good idea to just buy a set of tools that are used exclusively for soap making so that you don’t get sick.

Reindeer Poop Soap Directions

After melting the soap, you add the oil and the red coloring to make the nose. Then you pour it into the round mold and let it set.

Before you pour the melted soap that’s been colored brown into the poop mold, be sure to spray the mold with the rubbing alcohol. It makes it so much easier to get out after it has set.

Then place a round, red soap into the top of the poop mold and spray it with rubbing alcohol as well. It will help the soap adhere to the new soap.

Pour the brown soap in, spray it with rubbing alcohol to get out the bubbles, and allow it to harden overnight.

In the morning, pop it out and store it in an airtight container until you’re ready to give it to someone as a gift. Lucky them.

Reindeer Poop Soap Recipe for Kids -

Nothing says Merry Christmas than reindeer poop soap. Here's how to DIY reindeer poop so that your friends and family will thank you - or be totally grossed out.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Active Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 40 minutes
Difficulty Medium


  • 1 lb clear melt and pour soap
  • 1 tsp gingerbread scented oil
  • 1-2 tsp brown mica soap colorant
  • 1 drop red soap coloring
  • 1/2 tsp red cosmetic glitter
  • spray bottle of rubbing alcohol


  • small round soap mold
  • poop soap mold
  • 3 microwave-safe measuring cups


    1. Add 2 cubes of the clear soap base to one microwave-safe bowl. Melt in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted. Add gingerbread scented oil to the bowl.
    2. Add 1-2 drops of the red coloring to the bowl. Thoroughly mix the color into the soap mixture. If the color is not red enough, add one drop and mix. Mix in the glitter.
    3. Spray bottom of the mold with rubbing alcohol. Carefully add the red soap mixture into the mold until it reaches the top. Spray with alcohol to remove bubbles. Allow to harden completely, or about 30-40 minutes.
    4. Gently pop soap balls from mold and set aside.
    5. Add the remainder of the soap cubes to the microwave-safe bowl/measuring cup. Melt in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted. Add the scented oil and brown coloring to the bowl. Mix well.
    6. Spray the poop mold with rubbing alcohol and add one red soap ball to each cavity of the poop mold. You will see that each soap ball has a flat end. Place the balls so that the rounded side is face down in the mold.
    7. Spray the red soap balls with rubbing alcohol so that the soap ball and brown soap adhere to one another. Carefully add the brown soap mixture into the mold until it reaches the top. Spray with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles.
    8. Allow to harden overnight. Store in an airtight container until ready to use or gift.
