I decided to schedule certain days as "friend days" so that we have one or two days a week we have a playdate with a friend of Christian's for a friend of mommy's. :-) I have now updated the Friday schedule to be "Fun Fridays". That means that we will do a craft or go on an outing every Friday. :-) I can only think that this will be good for all of us.
This week I dug out some soapmaking supplies my mom (aka 'Tana Nana") had given us a while back. I figured Christian was the age that he would enjoy an activity like this, and he actually did!
|Preparation = A creative mess.|
|My helper stirring in the fragrance|
Next you stir in the fragrance and dye. We did this in batches so that we could layer a few colors.
|Cooling time = Time for a snack and book|
After pouring everything into the molds, and inserting the little frogs into the soap, it was time to allow everything to cool. It took about 45 minute total to cool, just enough time for us to clean up, have a snack and read a bit.
|Pretty bars, don't you think?|
