Meet & Greet Shawna & Learn to make something Silly!

Happy Monday!
Please Meet & Greet Shawna...

Hi everyone!!  I'm Shawna from A Very Dandoislion Life, and I'm thrilled to be here at My Mommy Can!!  Today I want to share a pretty cool project with you that is wicked easy and super fun for kids.  Silly Band Soap!

Over the last year I have amassed a very large collection of Silly Bands.  Don't judge me, I love the silly things.  Plus, I work with kids.  Anyway, I bought a bunch, traded some, and bought more at yard sales.  Then, I stopped wearing them.  I couldn't figure out what to do with them.  Then I had a great idea.  Soap.  I could put them in soap and sell them at our local yard sale day!

It's a very easy process.  Just divide up your silly bands.

Put them in your mold and pour in your soap.  I added some soap glitter and a few drops of orange scent to mine.
Then let them set.  Pop them out, and you're ready to wash up!
I love that some of them have silly bands sticking out.
Can you see the glitter?  I only put glitter in the "girly" ones. 
They're pretty big soaps, so they last quite awhile, and kids love using them. 
Many thanks to Jennifer for letting me pop in and share with everyone!
