In this way children will learn about physical state of matter and also they will recognize the odours by using special spices and herbs that they can add to their soap to customize their parfum. Then, with the use of the molds, they will give to their soap a special shape. And finally they can bring home their soap as a souvenir of this experience.

Duration: 15 min
Price: 5 euro per kid/soap
