Making French Soap!

Today, in Art, we made soap!

Here are some of the examples with cinnamon, oatmeal, coffee, or pine as the main ingredients.

This is a picture of us crushing up the oatmeal, into smaller pieces, to better use for our soaps.

To make our soaps...First we got three little cubes of glycerin each, then we put it in the microwave for 27 seconds, then we stirred in spices (oatmeal, rose or jasmine). After we stirred and stirred, we added food coloring to give it a color. Lastly, we put it in the cupcake holder to let it dry and get firm.

Here are our soaps! It has to sit for two hours to be completely dry and hold its form!

We had so much fun making different kinds of soaps!

Voila! Our Soap is finished! 

We wrapped it, and sealed it with a sticker!
