Mother's Day Craftiness
An older group, a more complicated craft, ably assisted by Haley. First we melted the soap chunks in the microwave. NOT TOO HOT!! Oops. Bubbles throughout the first batch... Then we carrrrrefulllly pour the melted soap into the molds. ("We" are four-year-old George of the steady hands.) Just a thin layer, then let it cool enough to form a thickish skin. Oops. A little on the cloth, but it will wash out! Next we very carefully place the plastic butterfly stickers onto the first layer. Carefully. Carefully! CAREful-- Oops. Some of the butterflies rest gracefully on the layer. Others have plunged recklessly to the very bottom, and will no doubt protrude from the surface after the first use. Here, Haley's hands wrestle with those of young Zach, who is of the plunge-to-the-bottom school of butterfly placement.
