Homemade fish in a bag soap
This is part of my homemade Christmas gifts series.
I have been hunting around for some affordable, useful and fun stocking filler presents for kids. The last time I made soap was this lavender soap.
Heckle inspired this idea by asking for a pet fish. I’m too traumatised by my experiences of keeping (or not keeping) pet fish to go there. Fake fish, I can do.
Why I can’t keep pet fish
You see, I’ve made two attempts with pet fish. Both times, I carefully (or so I thought) set up the tank before heading to the pet shop and returning home with my new pet fish in a bag. The first fish survived a couple of months before I found it bloated and floating. The second, it only took a fortnight and the bowl was empty with a little black lump on the floor. I doubt it was emotional issues that drove my poor fish to jump. Although, it might’ve been, it was living with me!
