Beauty salon game

My elder daughter’s brain is scientifically wired, she’s not so interested in girly things, on the other hand my little one is more influenced by the material world. She’s a girly girl who’s into nail polish, hair clips and pretty dresses. She inspired the beauty salon game.

First, I drew around my hands and made nails. Then I printed a female model head, punched her hair around and tied orange yarn into the holes.

I prepared nail polishes of different colours, eyeshadow and blush. There were a lot of hair bobbles and hairclips, plus some cotton buds and pads.

Then came the girls into the beauty salon. They turned into beauticians.

They started with the nail polish.

We put the hands aside to dry, then came the lady’s hair.  She asked for a plait. The girls decorated the hair as they wished. (When the nail polish dried they added rings made out of kitchen foil.)

Little L. needed a tiny bit of help with the plait at the beginning but she did a great job.

E. is a pro at this:

The lady checked her look in the mirror:

Make-up time:

With cotton buds they outlined the eyebrows, put blush on the cheeks, eyeshadow on the eyelids and added some blush on the lips too (I have no lipsticks). They also put some blush on their own cheeks afterwards.

They had lots of fun, and we mentioned all these beauty-realted vocabulary items (see the highlighted words in this post) that we usually don’t.

I loved E.’s wise comment: Simple is the best.
