It has been raining, raining, raining here and my girl wants nothing more than to go outside and play. It’s been rough trying to keep her and me couped up. I did manage to make a Dollar Store trip last week and snagged a couple of things.
I decided to pull some things out of the fun closet and let her have some fun.
3- dollar lipsticks of differing shades
1-page of aluminum foil
1-high lipped cookie sheet
I simply lined the cookie sheet with foil. The foil gave an added sensory touch to this messy fun. The high lipped cookie sheet really comes in handy. Nothing got on the table. I undid each of the lipsticks, modeled drawing with them and set her loose. Row adored this.
Cleanup was minimal. I plopped her in the sink. I honestly thought it was going to take forever to get the lipstick off her hands and that they would be dyed for a good week. It came off rather easily. Anything that didn’t come off quickly I ran a paper towel with some rubbing alcohol over and it cleaned it off quickly. Just check little fingers for tiny boo boos before using.
I’m always amazed how the simplest things make her happy. I strive to be more like that.
I’m always looking for quick and inexpensive fun things for my toddler. How about you? Have any ideas? I’d love to hear them!
