For her first birthday I made a growth chart out of a 2x4. I wanted to keep track every year, but also be able to take it with us when we move some day.
On her second birthday I gave her this table and chairs. I re-did the entire thing, complete with chalkboard paint on the top so she can color right on the table.
This year I found a tutorial on how to make play makeup and decided I had to give it a whirl. My little princess has become an early riser, so she tends to hang out in my room and drive me bonkers in the morning while I try to get ready. I have since given her a set of clean makeup brushes for her to use while I put on my 'face'. With every product I use I have to put some on her brush as well- little does she know, nothing actually goes on her brush, but she's happy to do as mommy does :)
This process was actually quite easy, it just takes a while to dry the paint.
-old, empty makeup containers
-old or out of date nail polish
-brushes or clean makeup sponges
Take any old makeup containers and clean the out using warm soapy water. This gave me a great excuse to go through my makeup and get rid of things that I hadn't used in ages!
Once the containers are dry, fill with nail polish and let dry. It's as simple as that! I found that the polish tended to settle in once it was dry so I had to go back and add more once the first layer was completely dry. I also had trouble with bubbles in the finished product. After a little trial and error, it seems to be best if you don't shake the nail polish too much before pouring it into your containers.
