What a great idea! At least the Moms/Dads would like it! Who needs more candy?! Not me.
Can you imagine the kids talking later ..." one lady actually gave us SOAP!! SOAP?? Yeah - soap! What a weirdo!"
Well if that was the only thing they could find that would qualify me as a weirdo, I think I’m okay with it.
My oldest daughter wants Bacon Soap (Bacon Fat is next to the Duck Fat). I’m going to get some this weekend to have it ready for Christmas.
When playing SoapCalc is an obsession, late at night...
When your mind wanders to wondering how molasses or cottage cheese would work in soap...
When someone comes to visit and my 5 year old starts digging out my scale, my soap equipment and slivers of soaps stored away like it's show and tell.
I came close. We had tons of kids. Gave out 100 tubs of play-doh and 80 bags of pretzels in 2 hours!!! I turned to hubby and said "We could hand out soap." But instead we went inside and turned out the lights.
...when you buy bacon just so you can save the bacon fat to make soap...
...you have dreams (or nightmares) of your soapy adventures...
...you get really excited at the beginning of each month to see what the new challenge is.
You have soapy recipes on pieces of paper Everywhere...not one notebook without a soap idea...
You grocery shop for your soap instead of your husband.
I actually did give out soaps at Halloween! Had made a load of calendula pumpkins, charcoal bats and cats, pure (white) skulls, burdock leaf (green) toads etc etc to sell from my barrow but my peddler's licence still hasn't come through (UK - have been waiting six weeks) so I put them out for trick or treaters. I listened at the window a little while to see how they went down and they loved them. Realised later it's not a bad marketing idea and may do so purposefully next year.
LOL thats really funny....I am surprised at how many children love soaps...especially little boys. Who knew?
I've noticed that too... I have a 15-year-old grandson who asked for more soap the last time he was here... a week ago. Interesting.
That's great! Usually 15 year-old boys smell like dirty socks, at least their rooms do.
A couple of years ago, before I started CP soap, i put together a few packages for my kids' school's silent auction. I had a big basket of various serums and oils and butters and lip balms and such (which I "priced" at $80), a smaller basket of same ($40), a package of 5 lip balms ($15) and some Star Wars M&P soaps ($12). At the end of the day, the big basket went for $40, the small basket for $20, the lip balms for $12, and two Grade 6 boys got into a bidding war over the Star Wars soaps which drove the price up to $29!! Who knew my market was Grade 6 boys???
Lesson learned: Make more M&P bars next school auction.
I had a similar experience the one time I made M&P bars for my 3 grand-nephews in the Seattle area. Featured a red lobster in a somewhat "fragrant" kelp background. They raved over them... of course, they're bigger now and still play with the Santa's Belly Jelly Soap from the year before.
