I'm a little behind, but have been wanting to share what we did for Mother's Day this year! I think the kids really had a lot of fun with it, and so did I! Together as a group, we mixed up our own bath salts to give to mom...
in both lavender and chocolate scents! I got the "recipe" here. Whether making them or using them, bath salts are a great sensory activity for kids! A great texture, and so many scent possibilities!
We also made our own soaps. The kids loaded a bowl full of glycerin soap bars, and I melted them down in the microwave. Then they added lavender scent and the colors of their choice. After it had cooled and set, the really fun part started! The kids used cookie cutters, a wood block, and a hammer to pound out flower and leaf shaped soaps!
I hope the moms enjoy their gifts as much as we enjoyed the process of making them! :)
In case anyone has noticed the lack of posts here lately, here are the beautiful tiny little toes that have been keeping me on mine! :) Our group has been enjoying and adjusting to having two infants and we are very busy! Hopefully we will find our new rhythm and I will get back to sharing our fun with all of you soon!
