In my home, BabyCake and I are outnumbered by testosterone! We’re usually doing a lot of activities geared towards the boys, so when the opportunity arises for me to spend some one on one girls time with my princess I jump on it. Spending mommy and me time is the perfect way for us to bond and create some new magical memories. She enjoys playing with her Shimmer and Shine dolls from Kmart, we make believe, do one another’s hair, and even play dress up.
BabyCake really likes lip gloss, I mean what girl doesn’t?! So during our play time together last week we had a fun girls day that included making our very own Shimmer and Shine glitter gloss. It’s so easy to make, and can be done in just a few minutes. It’s even a great activity for a girls spa day or birthday parties. Each girl can take home their very own unique lip gloss.
We only used two ingredients! Organic coconut oil and cake glitter. You can find both at your local grocery store. Coconut oil melts and solidifies based on temperature, so make sure to not keep it in a really warm room. When we made our glitter gloss, the oil was smooth and pliable.
What you need:
Craft sticks for mixing
Small pots for gloss storage
Simply put a few tablespoons of coconut oil in a bowl. Then sprinkle some of the cake glitter on top and mix. You’ll finish with a very cute glitter gloss for girls. We used small paint pot cups for the storage. You can find them at your local craft store.
Playing with Shimmer and Shine dolls found at our local Kmart helped us to complete our fun girls day. I love watching cute episodes of Shimmer and Shine with BabyCake on Nick Jr. The stunningly beautiful animated series features the fantastical adventures of genie-in-training twin sisters Shimmer and Shine and their human best friend, Leah. They have magical adventures that also teach preschoolers that persistence and teamwork always save the day!
Today I’m excited to be giving away two gift cards for $50 to Kmart so that your Little One can get her very own Shimmer and Shine dolls to help her imagination soar! Simply enter below!
