Taking Time For Me
I tell you I always feel so selfish when I want to just take off,…
The three kids and I absolutely love doing various crafts. Some of the crafts or things we have ended up doing together are; latch hook, crotchet, baking, friendship bracelets and collages. Honestly that list is small computed to what we do as a family together. Due to the fact that all three kids plus me enjoy crafting, I am constantly on the look out for things we can make or do together.
Most recently my Gram started making goat’s milk soap and that got me thinking, while the process sounds like it takes a long time for this type of soap, I knew maybe there is a kind of soap my kids and I can make from home. That is when I happened upon an article that tells me how to make fruit soap; http://wikitalks.com/2013/01/how-to-make-fruit-soap-2/.
While reviewing the how to make fruit soap article, I realized that making your own fruit soap would really be easy to do. There are supplies required that I don’t have on hand, sure, but there is nothing hard about getting a supply of the products needed on hand and working to create pretty bars of soap that the kids can use during bath and shower time. There is something amazing about that sense of pride you see on someone’s face after they have hand crafted an item that they can fully use as part of their every day life, that is always a proud Mama moment for me.
I fully enjoy creating and finding new ways for us to use our creative minds and imagination. After all, I am a big kid too, who fully enjoys hands-on projects.
What types of crafts/projects do you do with your family? Ever make soap?
