Shrek'N'Soak



We moved into our house almost a year ago, and some of you might recall the big jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom was one of the things that we were most excited about.

You also might recall that the adults seldom use said tub because either Miles tries to drink the bath water or the dog jumps in for a swim...

The girls, though? The girls soak on a regular basis after hard days of attending third grade and playing Minecraft!

When I got my Netflix assignment for this month - musical movies - I had visions of turning on Grease at full volume and performing the movie in its entirety for my little family. You guys - I know the whole thing by heart! The dialogue! The song lyrics! The dances! Nobody was interested in that though... because my family doesn't appreciate how incredibly awesome Mom is...

Mia immediately requested Shrek The Musical, and I wasn't shocked at all by her choice. We were lucky enough see the show last year at KC's Coterie Theater and she absolutely loved it!


Circling back around to the big ole bathtub now: big ole bathtub has a great view of the TV in Daddy and Mommy's bedroom!

I spy a little boy hiding behind the fold out sofa - aka Marlee's 2nd bed
Ogres of all sizes, I present: the Shrek'N'Soak Sickening Spa Party:



What spa night is complete without a few products to make you feel completely pampered? I took a few facial scrubs, lotion, bubble bath, and other 'spa' necessities and made new labels for them with disgusting names. Ogres are gross, friends! 

To add to the ambiance, we made up some Shrek Spit to sip on and started the movie.
Clockwise from left: Wrinkly Face Gunk (face cream), Poison 4YaNailz (nail polish remover), Baby Ogre Poop (charcoal & sugar facial mask), Eau de Armpitz (eucalyptus aromatherapy spray), Shrek Snot (avacado & green clay facial mask), Foam Of The Mouth (bubble bath), Elbow Grease (body lotion), Vomit Polish (green nail polish), Eye Boogerz B-Gone (eye cream)


I'd planned on taking pictures of the girls with their 'Baby Ogre Poop' and 'Shrek Snot' facials, but didn't get the chance. Miles was keeping me VERY busy refilling his glass of Shrek Spit! The kid loves to drink spit and if you'd like to make some for your kiddos, I promise not to call child protective services on you!

Shrek Spit:
  • Lemon-lime soda
  • Coarse green decorator's sugar crystals
  • Fine green decorator's sugar crystals
  • Fancy glass
  • Paper plate

Begin by pouring about a tablespoon of fine sugar onto the paper plate. Wet the rim of your fancy glass, then dip it into the sugar on the plate, smudging the rim until completely covered. Next take about a teaspoon of the coarse crystals and pour them into the fancy glass and top with the lemon-lime soda. Drink. That. Spit.

Your 'spit' will magically change from clear to green as the colored sugar dissolves!
This was an insanely easy way to turn watching a movie together into something special for the girls! Fingers crossed that one day they'll pamper me the way I pamper them - hold the spit and eye boogers!
