Note: Soap making is an adult task and for safety reasons, children should NEVER be involved. Sodium hydroxide should be kept in an area inaccessible to children and pets in order to ensure that they do not come in contact with it. Pets should be removed from the area while soap making is in progress. If you are looking for a fun project to get kids involved with, check out this bath bomb tutorial.

And don’t even THINK of giving her a bath without some form of bubbles – But I’m sorry, $5 per bath is too much for me in general, and now that I’m staying at home – forget it ($5 x 30 baths a month? $150.) Sure bubble bath is cheap and kids don’t need a bath bomb every time, but they are so much more fun than just regular bubbles!
