Cub and her friends have summer holiday. They wanted to make something crafty and we were scratching our heads as to what shall we make now. Since Sun is blazing here we thought why not we make some sun catchers. Following is their (I was just their crafty advisor! ) photo journey towards making colourful sun-catchers.

Sun as sun-catcher
We allowed these sun-catchers to dry and then these were hung in Cub’s bed-window to catch some sun rays. Boys wore them around their neck too (I forgot to click their pics wearing their sun-catchers!)

Hope you enjoyed kids’ efforts as much as they enjoyed making it.
Recently I had made Olive oil and herbs hand and foot scrub. You can check it here. Cub simply loved it and so did I. We finished it and now were in need of a new batch. Then I felt, since it is summer, it would be great to have a citrus flavoured scrub. So I used orange peel, dried in the summer sun, ground it and made a super smelling scrub.
Orange peel – dried and grounded (About 1 table spoons)
Sugar (about 3 Table Spoons)
Olive oil (As needed)
Super easy Method:
Mix the grounded orange peel and sugar together. Add olive oil to it to make a lump. (I needed three tea spoons of it). Again mix properly and voila! it is ready.
I used it today and loved the experience. Yummy, heady orange smell … and my skin was super smooth too!
Hope you like it too. Enjoy!
P.S. I wanted to gift this to my friend but she said she is allergic to orange peel. (hence, I made another one for her without orange peel.) Please check before using this (or any other products) that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used.
