Making fun soaps with kids has inspired me to make some more kid friendly soaps.
Here's the latest.
The base is clear so the frog is easier to see.
The glitter adds sparkly fun.
The frog is a stretchy toy that will fly through the air.
Sort of like a rubber band.
How fun to have an acceptable way to
shoot a rubberband at your sibling.
Mom, "Go to your room. You know better than to
shoot a rubberband at your brother/sister."
Child, "But Mom, it's not a rubberband.
It's a flying frog."
Mom, "You just doubled your time out."
Meanwhile, Dad is stifling his laughter and
amusement lest he end up in trouble as well.
As Mom makes sure child is headed for said room,
Dad might even shoot the frog.
Just to see if he can get it to fly as far as his child did.
And because it looked like so much fun.
If he's really daring,
he might even shoot the frog at Mom.
Maybe by the time the child's time out is over,
Mom will shoot the frog at Dad.
I'm a Mom.
I know about these things.
Do I need to put a warning on the label like this:
RUBBER BAND FROG
TOWARD A PERSON (SUCH AS YOUR SIBLING)
MIGHT PUT SOMEBODY'S EYE OUT
Or it might land you in time out.
So shoot it when Mom's not looking.
And don't shoot it at Mom's backside.
You know she has eyes in the back of her head.
You don't want to go putting those out.
Then you'll really be in trouble.
For a while, anyway.
After that, maybe you can get away with lots of things
since she can't see behind her back anymore.
Maybe I'll include a warning about running with scissors too.
Just in case.
Do you have any fun stories about shooting rubberbands (or frogs)?
Come on. I'll bet you've shot one - at least once.
If not, it's high time you gave it a try.
Just don't put any eyes out.
Thanks for reading!
