It didn’t work out like we had expected.  We had two that shrunk up and two that got all mushy.  lol.  We’ll try again as Halloween approaches.

A New Kind of White Elephant

Posted in Art, Homeschooling, kids with tags , , , on June 16, 2008 by Pendant & Ring

Last time we were at Grandma Z’s we talked about the soap carvings she had made as a child. So inspired, we made our own soap creations. Zak was thrilled to use a pocket knife all by himself and Sam really liked the feeling of smooshy soap.

Sam started to make a butterfly that morphed into a heart that morphed into a fish head and she finally ended up adding water (drop by drop) to make bath balls!

Zak made a baby elephant but wasn’t happy with the finished product because the trunk broke off.

This is a project we’ll be doing again!
