Spring Soap Making

The thick fog started to clear just before the morning session and by the afternoon session it was a beautiful bright Spring day. We had organised two activities for our session today.

One group made soap using flower petals. The melt and pour soap base was weighed and cut up into small pieces before it was melted in a double burner. Once it had melted we added dried marigold petals and poured it into plastic moulds. Once the soap had dried we wrapped it in film wrap and then decorated it with flowers.

The other group took part in a Spring Treasure Hunt. Using our orienteering maps as a guide we raced around the field solving clues. At the end the winners were announced and there were Easter presents for everyone.
