Here's an easy, rainy day craft to do this summer or anytime your kids need a fun activity! Make your own soap and get a prize at bath time!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Molds to make the soap in (plastic cups work too!)
  • Cooking spray or coconut oil
  • Pure solid glycerin soap (found in cubes at craft stores)
  • Essential oils (It's fun to let kids choose their favorites!)
  • Natural food coloring or soap dye (craft store)
  • Small plastic toys

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Coat the inside of your molds/cups with oil or cooking spray.
  • This step is for adults b/c it involves hot liquid. Melt soap by placing cubes of soap in a measuring cup and microwave for 30 secs - continue in 15 second intervals until the soap is melted.
  • Add in a few drops of food coloring/soap dye to reach your desired color. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add 6-8 drops of your essential oil. For bath time we love Lavender, SleepyIze, Stress Away and Peace & Calming.
  • Carefully fill mold about 1/3 of the way full with the hot soap. Let cool for 20 minutes, and then place the small plastic toy on top of the mostly hardened soap.
  • Repeat steps 2–4 to melt and color the remaining soap. Pour another layer of soap into the mold to cover the plastic toy.
  • Let cool for 2+ hours. Once completely cooled, turn the mold upside down and pop the soap out.

OOTM

KidPower is a unique, everyday blend formulated to help inspire feelings of confidence, courage, and positivity at home, at school, or on the playground…. But it’s not just for kids!! This blend is also amazing for adults and makes a wonderful perfume!

DAILY HABITS WITH KIDPOWER:

  • Apply 2–4 drops directly to wrists, chest, neck or any other area. Dilution is not required, except for the most sensitive of skin, so you can add a roller fitment directly to the bottle or opt for the roll-on version!
  • Create an application ritual, and get your kids involved! Grab your KidPower or KidPower Roll-on and place it beside their toothbrush, backpack, or homeschool bin - anywhere they will be able to find and easily use it daily. We love rolling on our oil and repeating a family motto, a bible verse or positive affirmation together!
  • Make a roller with KidPower, Vetiver and Lavender for helping calm over excitement and promote calm, confident focus.
  • Make a simple linen spray with equal parts KidPower and Lavender, a splash of witch hazel and filtered water. Spray on sheets, lovies, pajamas, or any other soft surface as desired.

Enzymes are crucial to our health and digestion, and in an ideal world our foods would be rich in natural enzymes. Unfortunately the average diet and even the soil quality of our produce lead us to be sorely depleted in enzymes at an early age. Without these little workers, we are not assimilating the nutrients that we need, and we all know that growing bodies need those nutrients!

books

We all start at square one with our knowledge of health, but what matters is our willingness to learn and grow! Each month we have a selected list of books and resources to help us do just that. Recommended reading for you as you help your children pursue health and wellness!
