The Dutch make soap

Last week you may have seen my post about the snow and our family visit from my Dutch relatives.

The 3 boys were fascinated with my soap making so they decided to join me in making some fun Melt and Pour embedded soaps.

The 3 boys started by choosing a fragrance and then chose their colours. They wanted clear soaps so we worked with clear Melt and Pour soap base.

The finished results….

The boys had so much fun they decided to take home some of the Melt and Pour kits we have available for their cousins so they could make soap with them.
