Pajama Spa Party

If you're like me, sometimes you feel like throwing a small party for no reason.  (Trust me, your kids won't mind.)  Bestie and I decided to have a little spa day with our girls.

Here is our little party agenda:

  • Breakfast
  • Nails
  • Hair

We ate an oh-so-healthy *cough! cough!* doughnut breakfast.  The girls were in heaven.

After we had thoroughly washed the chocolate off of three sticky children, we started painting fingers and toes.

They each wanted something different.

Princess wanted pink and purple nails with green hearts and little gem stickers.

I am not great at fancy nails, but I must have done alright.  Look how happy she is.

Goofy wanted red nails and yellow hearts.

Here's Goofy being...well...goofy.  She wouldn't stop laughing.

Finally, we have Brownie's cute little red nails.

Another happy girl.

Next, it was on to hair.  I got to do all of the hair, which was super fun for me.  Again, I'm no fancy hair expert, but the girls all loved the way their hair turned out.

Here's the view from the back.

This is yet another example that you don't have to spend a lot of money to have a great time.

What are some of your favorite, inexpensive activities?

Halloween Nail Painting

Time to get festive!  I don't paint my kids' nails very often, so when I do paint their nails it is a special treat.  They were so excited to have their nails painted with Halloween designs.

I used this activity while we watched General Conference.  If they heard the word associated with each color we put a tally mark.  When it was over we used the colors they earned to make the different designs.

Princess liked showing off her nails.  Let's get a closer look...

Here is her right hand.  She loved the little ghost.

And the left hand.  I thought they all turned out pretty cute.

I made some cute little eyeballs on my big toe (ignore my ugly feet).

Goofy wanted orange nails with a black tip.

Feel free to use this printable for your own Halloween nail painting party.

Happy Halloween!

4th of July Flower Toenails

I had BIG plans for this 4th of July.  BIG plans!  I was going to take my kids to the parade and all of the events.  The kids were going to sing my praises about how I am the best mom.  We were going to come home simply exhausted...

Even the best laid plans can fall through.

Because we couldn't get to the parade, I decided to make things as festive as possible at home.  We started off the day with painting nails.  I knew this would be a hit because nail painting is a rarity at our house.

I'm sure it's obvious from the previous pictures, I painted Princess' nails red.  Then, using a toothpick, I made little flowers on her big toes.  Goofy got white nails with blue flowers.

My girls were so proud to show off their nails.  Bud had lots of fun watching his sisters get their nails done.  He kept pointing at their feet and saying, "Pretty!"

General Conference Topics Nail Painting

"These are your days to stand strong as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ." - Neil L. Andersen

General conference has come and gone.  How are you doing at applying the messages in your own life?

Out of all of the activities I have ever done to keep my kids engaged while watching general conference, this was by far my girls' favorite - not to mention that it was super cheap and easy!  I pulled out three bottles of nail polish and put a topic on each bottle.

Whenever my girls heard one of the words, I would paint one of their nails.

Here are Princess' and my toes.  Lovely, aren't they?  I am hoping that my strangely painted toenails might give me a chance to have a missionary opportunity by sharing what I heard at conference with someone.  They also serve as a reminder of what I heard and felt each day that I see them.

What are your favorite general conference activities?
