Winter 3-part cards, Montessori

Naters' loves to make the 3-part card little books, so I made her this Winter themed sheet.  I print 2 copies, make a book for her to model, then give her the supplies to make her own!  just click on the image and print in jpg format or email me and I can send you the publisher file.

homemade laundry detergent powder

This really was super easy to make!
2 cups Borax
2 cups Arm & Hammer super washing soda
1 bar Fels-Naptha stain remover soap
(i found them all in the laundry aisle at Wal-mart)
I purchased a betty crocker fine grater at the dollar store that i will use just for this

grated the fels-naptha bar of stain remover soap while Naters worked on her workboxes; then mixed it with 2 cups of Borax and 2 cups of the Arm & Hammer super washing soda.  voila! laundry detergent powder!  First I tried it on a load of whites and was very pleased.

Thanks for looking!

Homemade Bath Crayons!

I saw these on a couple of blogs and thought what a great idea.  I bought an ice cube tray for water bottles (WalMart) and one lb of meltable olive oil soap (bought with 40% off coupon).  I already had on hand the wilton gel food colorings.  Made all of these for about $3.00, and still have 1/2 lb of soap left.
Ideas are swirling in my head for what I can do with future batches (scents, glitter, mica powders)!!!
