Fun project for a 9-year-old girly girl.

Sarah's a girly-girl.  She loves make-up, perfume and clothes.  She also likes to watch You-Tube tutorials.

When she came to me telling me all about a tutorial she watched on how to make your own lipstick I knew there was no getting out of it.  We would be making our own lipstick.

She promised it was easy and actually - it was!!!

She picked out some crayons that were typical lipstick colors.  She removed the paper and broke each crayon in half.

She filled a big pot with water and put it on low to begin boiling.

She then put one tablespoon of coconut oil and a crayon in a small glass dish and placed the dishes in the pot of water. We left them to simmer while we did a few chores around the house.

Occasionally she would check on them and stir them a little.


After they had melted completely I helped her remove them from the water and we poured the liquid crayon/coconut oil mixture into empty paint containers which she had rinsed and dried.


This made a lot of lipstick so we ended up finding other containers to save the rest in. 

And here's the finished product:

My cutie with her pink lips! 

Free lipstick = happy girl.
Easy project = happy momma.

How fun! I'm all about easy projects also! I'm not very crafty or too in-depth most of the time!

If only I had a little girl to do this with! How fun! I may have to borrow a friend's daughter to justify doing this. :)
