Remarkables Market

and the girls sold bath fizzers. quite successful really. miss K certainly put in the hard yards.

Castile soap update: it's been drying for 2 weeks, my impatience saw us start using a block a couple of days ago. so far - all good! Apparently the reason for leaving it to dry more is so it lasts longer. Has a nice lather, smells a lot like soap. Next time a super dose of lemon grass essential oil will go in the mix!

not paper

The kids and I worked on some gifts this weekend.

We made stuff.
We made soap.
We made bath balls.
We found recipes.
We planned.
We mixed.
We learned about saponification and about acids and bases.
We have plans to make more.
