I’ve got a stash of old make-up I don’t use anymore: lipsticks, lip gloss and eyeshadow. I thought it would be fun for the kids to use the make-up as an art material.
Drawing is something my kids love to do, and I’ve learnt the value of mixing the materials up. Here are some examples:
Wood Picture: Changing the base material from paper to wood gave a fresh approach to a simple activity.
Making Paper Dolls: Cutting out a drawn figure turned a drawing into a toy.
Drawing Out and About: Using a box clipboard allows us to take drawing around us, everywhere!
Maybe it’s time to do a make-up clean up…but don’t throw it out, let the kids use it for art.
Tip: If the lipstick is soft, place it in the fridge for a few minutes before using.
