By P&J Trading

All of our products are made and shipped from the United States of America! Thus, here at P&J Trading, we love to celebrate the 4th of July! This national holiday helps us remember and celebrate America’s independence.

The Fourth of July is also a great time to spend with your loved ones whether you are having a BBQ or going to the beach. One of our favorite things we do as a family is spend all day long at the beach. And we always make sure to have popsicles on hand to cool down. Thus, we want to share with you how to make an independence-themed popsicle soap!

This great 4th of July idea can be used for home and bathroom decoration, in a gift basket, or whatever you like! This is a perfect family project, fit for both kids and adults. Check our Summerset as an idea for your soap.

Let us know how you celebrate your 4th of July by dropping a comment below! And from our P&J Trading family to yours, we want to wish you a Happy Fourth of July.
