Here we go! It’s so nerve racking putting a video up of yourself. Pictures are easy. They are still, quiet and still hold a bit of mystery to them. A video is the real deal. Ha! I wanted to start a little series here on the blog called “Let’s Make Something”. My favorite things to do with Rowan are little projects we can work on together. Whether thats cooking, art, etc… I thought since so many of you out there are Moms we could share the fun projects we do together and give you some ideas for you and your little ones.
Today we made bath bombs. We are big fans of baths around here, both Finley and Rowan love them. I love those Lush bath bombs but can’t justify the price of those amazing things all the time. So we just decided to make our own. Rowan loved this little project and you better believe she reminds me every time she takes a bath that she wants to use one of them. I love seeing the pride she takes in everything she makes. It warms my heart when Rowan runs to the door when Kev comes home and can’t get the words out fast enough as she tells him about the things she made that day.
1-3/4 cup baking soda
1 cup citric acid (I found at Walmart by the canning supplies)
2 cups cornstarch
TIP: Try adding your own touch. We’ve also made ones with oatmeal and coconut oil to make them great for your skin. Other essential oil favorites for bath bombs are lavender and mint. Wrap them up in a pretty bag or fill a mason jar and give as a gift to friends.
p.s. I didn’t realize Rowan had knocked the camera so that’s why our heads are cut off the entire time. Whoops. And yes, my hair is ridiculous looking. I had just taken out Heidi braids. The crimped look is not one I was trying to aim for. Double whoops. Note to self: Schedule a hair cut for this weekend. It’s our first “Let’s Make Something” video. We can only get better!
and yes, Rowan said Baby Finley’s favorite foods were “milk and boobies”
