Awesome LUSH Fun Hacks

Who else loves LUSH Cosmetics as much as I do? It is kind of like my grown up, local version of Disneyland. It is such a happy store, full of unique products that smell divine! Dave knows that Harper and I both love LUSH and one day, he surprised us with goodies from LUSH. He had bought LUSH Fun for Harper to try out. We hadn’t ever used it before, but we became instant fans. If you haven’t ever heard of LUSH Fun, it has the consistency of dough that kids can play with, but it can also be used as bubbles and soap! It became an instant favorite at our house.

I had a friend who worked at LUSH for a while and she learned some great hacks for making the most out of LUSH Fun! With her permission, I am sharing those tips with you!

Summertime Finger Painting Ideas

I like to have a few backup activities that can be done inside on the days that are too hot to go outside. One of these activities is finger painting! I feel like finger painting is something that children of many ages can enjoy. It brings a whole new level of creativity for kids when they can get their hands dirty! To stick with a summer theme, I came up with two different summer finger painting ideas that are pictures your kids can create.

I absolutely love to craft with my toddler. Sometimes it can get pretty crazy, but that is part of the fun and the experience! Before I was a mom, I would substitute teach at a special needs preschool every once and a while. The teachers there taught me the coolest trick for making puffy finger paint! I couldn’t wait to use it with my own kids. It was so fun to do with my daughter. Although it took her a little while to warm up to the idea of putting her hands in the paint, she was a total natural once she really dug in and got her hands dirty! One really great part about this paint, is that it is made of just 3 ingredients that you probably already have at your house!
