Aria got a soap-making kit for her birthday and couldn't wait to get it started. So, today we busted it out and made some soap. I say "we" but I really just supervised since she had to use the microwave. It really is so cool to see them doing this kind of stuff on their own now-a-days.
|First she placed the clear soap in a microwave-safe cup with a pour spout. She microwaved it for just about 20 seconds until it was liquified.|
|Next she divided the liquid soap into 4 different containers- very carefully!|
|Moving quickly to prevent the soap from setting up, she added different colored dyes and perfumes to the liquid soaps.|
|Then she carefully poured the soap into different molds. She placed the molds in the freezer to set up for a couple of minutes, popped them out and. . . .|
|Her soaps turned out perfectly!|
|She decided to package a few of them up and give them away as teacher gifs.|
|What a fun project!|
