In the interest of full disclosure I feel the need to post this craft. It was a miserable failure. See those kids? They look happy don't they? They think they are having fun carving soap like my scouts has done earlier in the morning. (Did I mention I am now a Den mother?) Well let's just say I now feel really bad that I didn't stay and help my fellow Den mother clean up her garage when we were done. The kids played out there stabbing and carving their creations for about 20 minutes. Then I spent at least 30 scrubbing the smashed soap off of my patio. Not fun. Bad craft.
Brittany did carve a heart that said "I love Mom" so that did help. Course she gave it to me before I grumbled about the cleaning for half an hour.
