My mom wrote the ingredients out on a wipe-off board. Then they they grated the soap.
After they grated enough soap, they mixed all of the ingredients together (with close supervision since Borax is poisonous if ingested).
My mom really likes using this laundry soap to wash towels and sheets.
In addition to making soap, the girls made a covered wagon! They draped bedsheets over a 4 post bed and set it up as a covered wagon. When E and I got back from the library, we all went for a ride. I sat in the front and drove the horses. We had a lot of fun playing in the covered wagon!
