Step Away from Minecraft and Make Some Soap {reboot}


August 31, 2016

With summer quickly coming to an end, and the beginning of another school year quickly approaching, I thought I'd re-post this video of my oldest son (now 10) making his first batch of soap!

Here's to a new year of learning, homework done on time, full school calendars, patience, and lots of relaxing lavender oil.....lots.....

My 9 year old has been glued to the computer lately playing Minecraft. I'm not sure what it's all about but I hear him say: iron, diamond sword, and ahhhh I lost everything! Yesterday I dragged him off the computer and got him into creative science mode and helped him make his first batch of soap!

He made a fragrance blend of sweet orange, coconut, and fresh cut grass and colored it with Australian pink clay and purple pigments. He did pretty good and was so proud of himself; it was cute. (That's an equally proud mama talking)

Now lets see if he can wait the four weeks of cure time to use it!
