Making Soap

Let’s face it, we like to get dirty. Playing in the garden, digging up worms, paint ball, art explorations— you name it, we’ve tried it. So when Auntie Orn suggested making some of her 99% natural soap with us we couldn’t resist the opportunity to learn how to clean up– the garden fresh way. We used coconut oil, bio char, tomatoes, butterfly pea flowers, tamarind and more to make fun leaf molds of silky soap.

 

 

Thanks again Auntie Orn! See you tomorrow for eco brick making and compost creation! Untitled-1111 (2)

Shampoo making

 

This weekend we had the pleasure of hosting Auntie Orn in our kitchen for an all-natural shampoo making workshop.

First we recorded our garden fresh ingredients in pictures and words.

Then we designed our bottle packaging and named our shampoo, ‘Dove’, ‘Eat Me’, and ‘Song kran’ were some of our favorite titles.

Next, we added our ingredients to a large bowl to prepare for boiling.

Finally, we strained our fragrant mixture and bottled it to take home.

Thanks Auntie Orn for the visit, we can’t wait for our next Sustainability for Kids workshop! See you on Saturday for soap-making!

Cooking with Wow Pam!

We were so grateful to host Pam Pimmas, the owner of The Dorm Bakery and the creator of http://wowpam.com/  this past week at our garden! We learned about using plants like pandan, butterfly pea flowers, and pumpkin to add natural coloring to the tapioca and rice flower balls of the Thai dessert, Bua Loy.

Our favorite part was rolling out the dough into little balls, and some giant ones too!

Then we watched very carefully as the balls were boiled and helped to measure out the palm sugar (yum!) and coconut milk.

 

Ta da: our finished product, tasty Bua Loy.

Garden Week

This week we explored all things garden. We used out body to mimic the shapes of seeds and stems to flowers blooming, we used our hands to trace and sketch the shapes of flowers, we dug in the dirt and repurposed old plastic bottles to bring new life, AND then we made the most delicious dirt chocolate to eat in cooking class.

 

 

We had so much fun growing with you this week, thanks for reminding us that every seed is special and unique to it’s soil and circumstances.
