My daughter is almost six, and since she was old enough to link presents with Christmas, we’ve had her make her own gifts: handmade cards, handprint/footprint art, and decorated cookies.
Like many parents-turned-teachers, I bought lots of “educational” supplies and kits back in the spring. Although most are gathering dust, she begged us to open up her soap making kit one rainy weekend. I was impressed: The kit goes beyond just making soap and explains the science and chemistry behind it (very educational and with the times).
She got to decorate her lab with the included stickers, and as a bonus, she’s made almost enough soap to give to everyone for the holidays. Now, the kit doesn’t come with that much glycerin, so if you want to make more than a few tiny hotel-sized bars, you have to buy more (Amazon to the rescue). We even made some larger bars with some Disney-themed silicone molds I had. We haven’t tried making bath bombs yet, but it’s going to be a long winter.
The kit is $29.95 at Nordstrom. Soap & Bath Bomb STEM Craft Kit
