UPDATE: The winner is…Brenda A!
This summer, we’ll have four kids underfoot. The two older ones have part-time jobs and driver’s licenses, so I’m not so worried about keeping them occupied. The 13-year-old and 8-year-old will present tougher challenges. I was thinking of maybe trying to get them excited about some crafty projects. Maybe tackle one every couple of weeks. I’d love to pass along my “craft bug” to someone!
Something my dd and I did a few years ago was make soap. We tried just one recipe, and it actually turned out very, very nice! It was an oatmeal-honey-goat’s milk recipe, and we added some essential oils for scent. The project didn’t take more than an hour to put everything together, and after we stuck it in the fridge while it hardened, we had lovely bars of soap!
This was us putting together our ingredients before sticking the measuring cup in the microwave to melt the mixture.
We found some cheap, basic molds on Amazon. All we did after stirring our hot, melted mix was pour it into the mold.
And we had pretty, nicely scented, smooth-as-butter soap!
So, I’m going to hunt for my old molds and purchase ingredients to be ready!
