“Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning. You appreciate and strive for the exquisite. You are painfully sensitive. You are extremely complex. You cherish integrity. Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble. Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. You are utterly fascinating. Trust yourself!”

I thought I would redo my post for Mother's Day again this year.  I am making the lemon sugar hand scrub again, well actually, the students will be making it.  Below you can read all about the ingredients you need and how to put it all together for a sweet Mother's Day gift. To download all the files you will need including the ingredient list, the card inserts and the labels, CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW or HERE.

I included these with the gift so Moms would know what the gift was made with, and how to use it.

The ingredients were easy to find and the students really enjoyed creating their own special hand scrub.

People have been asking me what I put the finished scrub in. I have been fortunate for the last two years to find the small plastic containers (pictured above) at Dollarama in packages of four.  If you cannot find these, the smallest jars from Bernardin (which you can buy at Walmart, Canadian Tire and many grocery stores) are also perfect.

THIS RECIPE MAKES ONE JAR OF HAND SCRUB.
YOU NEED TO BUY MATERIALS IN BULK DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR CLASS.

UPDATE:  2016: This year I am using small mason jars for the sugar scrub so I created some tags which could be tied around the neck of the jar.  If you would like a copy just click on the image below to download from Google Drive.



We made cards to accompany our final product.

  4. As fellow Canadians, we all work so hard creating products for a niche market. I'm hoping to host a Canadian specific event to boost all our TPT sales and/or bring traffic to our blogs in the coming months, and so I've created this little survey to see what we're all interested in. Please fill out and share with your followers and friends too please! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5T5V5ZW
