  • This is a great craft for me to do with Callie during our Christmas break! We have 10 days off together and I intend to do as many hands-on things both inside and out during that time frame so thanks for this one :)

  • This was such a fun activity! It was a yucky weather weekend here and I’m so thankful that we had an activity (like this) to do and we also purchased your Lava Lip Gloss kit and had a blast making those too! LOVE that I don’t have to worry about any harmful ingredients!
