This Little Piggy: nail art

Brooke is only turning 3 next month and already loves getting her nails painted. But with a tight budget it's best to "do-it-yourself". So we got this book a few weeks back. And WOW! you will love it. 

It come with a palette of six water-based, non-toxic nail polishes
Buy it here

Perfect for little hands. No nail polish remover is required. You can peel the polish off in a few days.

Craft: Rainbow Rice

Make your own rainbow 

My daughter and I saw a beautiful rainbow the other day after a rainstorm. But my camera was not working { user error, so typical}. 

So this will have to do...
Homemade Rainbow Rice
- 10 pound bag of rice 
- water
- ziplock bags
- watercolor paint {We like this liquid kind}

Take your 10 pound bag of rice and separate it into 10 ziplock bags evenly. In each bag put different paint colors as desired (we did a rainbow). Put in some watercolor paint. 
Shake the bag until the color is absorbed onto the rice (we loved this part!).
Let the rice dry overnight. And VOILA!

I love your comments! Please share your ideas!
