Homemade soap

One of my daughters Christmas presents was a neat kit for soapmaking!  So we went to town making some soap.  

After making two things my mind is exploding and I want to try making more and more!  :)  

 Right after we took this picture she went to the bath tub to try out the new soap.  :)  This is a orange zest soap but I am about to search for more scents and get ready to make more.  :)

Yes there is a hidden toy inside the soap on the right.  

Yes I will admit I think I had more fun with the soap making over my daughter.  She had fun in the bath with the soap though...  :)

ANY TIPS or IDEAS on Soapmaking?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
