Homeschool Soap Making

This might not be the best picture of the girls in our group working on their soap, but it's the only shot I use your imagination!

We melted glycerin soap base in a large pyrex bowl via the microwave. Then I poured the soap into molds for the girls - didn't want any burned fingers. They took craft sticks and stirred in their choices of fragrance oil, coloring, and ground herbs. My favorite was the yellow bar with little flecks of catnip in it!

All in all everyone had fun and hopefully learned something.
