Set aside some “fun-with-mum” time, and go crazy playing beauty salon with your kids. They’ll love the bonding time with you. It’s a fun, inexpensive activity you can do together.

We used some old makeup samples make up to produce this masterpiece! We
had a terrific evening before bath time to make up ourselves!
