St. Charles County, Missouri – Make your own beautifully handcrafted soap at The Historic Daniel Boone Home near Defiance. Our experienced park staff will teach children and adults the step-by-step procedures of making soap from scratch at our Hands-On Heritage: Soap Making workshop from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday, July 14. 

Infused with herbs and other natural ingredients, you learn how to combine fats and lye water to produce a strong cleaning soap similar to what pioneer families used on the frontier, but with modern techniques. At the end of the day, each participant takes home their own batch of scented homemade soap; additional soaps may be purchased from the gift shop. 

This soap making workshop is intended for ages 8 and up and is perfect for crafty individuals, scouts and other groups who want to learn more about the art of making soap. Cost of the program is $5 and space is limited. To make a reservation for Hands-On Heritage: Soap Making, call the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at 636-949-7535 or visit
