I took Emma and Lexi to the store today to pick out toys so they could use their own money. They both had about $10. Lexi got Barbie stuff but Emma got makeup and face paint. Emma had a very specific thing in mind for her face paint. I followed her directions specifically but it looks a little like an amoeba crawling on her face. I think she was trying to describe one of Heather’s from a fair last year. Lexi is supposed to be a cat that we copied from a random site. She washed it off about 2 minutes after putting it on. And mine…I asked for a butterfly and Emma did her best. No matter how it looks, we had fun and it was a different activity than normal.
I can’t say I’m not tempted to copy one of these full butterfly patterns on my own later. Who says face paint is only for fairs?
