First off if this is in the wrong place Mods please move.

When I first joined this forum some one posted a story on how lye and fats make soap by using drawings of wolves(lye) sheep(fats) and bunnies(soap) I thought it was cute and printed it out. Going thru some papers I found it and put it in a folder.
Getting ready for a craft show I found the folder and thought what the heck I'll take it with me. Sure enough a lady with 3 kids states she does not use soap with lye in it. Boy do I have a story for you with pictures.
By the time I was done with the story the kids were yelling they wanted the bunny soap...She bought 10 bars.

This is great! I'm going to have my first soap lesson with my gardening kids in a few weeks and this will be a wonderful way to explain the process in a way that they will understand. Don't worry, not making real soap with them. We are using M&P and adding ingredients from our garden...ie loofah, lavender..etc.
