Yesterday I paid a visit to my aunt’s fourth-grade class!

4th Grade Demo 1

Pouring soap into the mold.


After talking a bit about the history and science of soap, I fired up the soapmaking apparatus and demonstrated how it’s made. The kids stayed several feet back while the mixing part was going on, obviously, but they loved watching the process, and once the blending was done I let them file past and take a look at the soap in the mold.

One batch down, one ready to go.

One batch down, one ready to go.

Then I put together a second batch, of Waste Not, which is the soap I had handed out pieces of as samples. This went pretty quickly, and then they asked a really surprising number of excellent questions.

A good time was had by all, and I think there’s a good chance I’ll be back next year to do it again!

Oh, and the first demo soap was cut this morning:
