I love vacation, I love September, and I love stinky cheese!
No, not really.
I did some fun cooking and crafty activities with the kids during vacation. Tie-dying with children under the age of 6 is… interesting. But the kids loved it, (some of) the shirts look great, and those tie dye kits make it really easy. If you are daring and like semi-permanent messes, I say go for it!
Duck, duck, soap!
Thanks to an adorable DIY kit from a friend, we also tried out soap-making last week. So easy. Melt glycerin, add fragrance, glittery color and oatmeal, stir, pour in molds and you have adorable duck-shaped soap. The bonus? I’m all for crafts that encourage my children to wash their hands or other kid parts. If I made them again, I’d use less of the fragrance and skip the oatmeal. The orange glitter stays, though. Quack!
