Crafting- Part 1

If you aren't much of a crafter...but you want to do something fun with your kiddos- try making soap! It is super easy with quick results!

What you will need:

:: clear glycerin soap
:: dye and fragrance drops (for soap) (my mom brought the glycerin and the drops from the States for those of you who live here in Austria)
:: plastic trays, ice cube trays or muffin tins (we found ours at Ikea)

To begin-
* melt about 4 squares of the glycerin in the microwave until melted (less than a minute)

*then add the drops of coloring and fragrance that you desire, stir until mixed

*we sprayed our trays with Pam just to be safe, then we started to spoon in the melted glycerin

*let them sit for about 30 minutes

*pop them out of the trays...and Tah Dah...beautiful little soaps!

where did you get the soap? I'm guessing you had your mom bring it?
