A DIY afternoon with your children!

With the school holidays approaching, finding activities to occupy your children is not always an easy task... Two weeks during which you have to occupy their minds... and their hands!

So why not offer them in-house Do It Yourself workshops with the BeautyMix and its products? The opportunity for them (and for you) to share a fun moment around a creative hobby, which will allow them both to have fun but also to learn the right gestures! 

So are you ready ?

Some ideas for a successful holiday!

Combining business with pleasure is BeautyMix's credo!

First idea: make a personalized shower gel with your child. Children are often fans of very foaming shower gels with sweet smells and explosive colors. This home cosmetics workshop is an opportunity to explain to them that a shower gel, although very attractive, must aim to cleanse their skin while respecting their skin barrier, their hydrolipidic film and the pH of their skin. It should also be pointed out that most shower gels do not always have a composition that is very respectful of their skin and would even tend to damage it. You can explain to them that with BeautyMix, they will be able to create their own healthy shower gel and add the scent and color they want!

So let's go ! Show them the recipe on the book or the mobile application on the page of the shower gel. Follow the recipe step by step with them and have them choose thehydrolat of their choice (rose, mint, orange blossom...). If they want other perfumes , you will find in some stores or online hydrosols or natural fragrances sweeter (fruit), gourmet (vanilla, caramel...) or flowery (blueberry, lavender...). 

According to their wishes, decorate their shower gel with a few drops of food coloring (red, blue, green...). These can be found online and in supermarkets. Natural, they pose no risk to their skin!

Know that from the age of six, children can make their BeautyMix recipes independently, under your supervision! You may be able to guide them in their first homemade cosmetics creation and then let them discover and test other recipes that they can personalize according to their desires! Children are full of imagination and this activity will stimulate their creativity. In the same way and as they wish, they can create their shampoo or even their toothpaste !

During the holidays this winter will also take place the carnival from February 20 to 25! You can offer your children to create their homemade makeup and use our "Halloween makeup" recipe. In our article, we offer you a recipe that is healthy for their skin and ideal for making the makeup of their choice in complete safety. Just follow the recipe from lip balm and add the pigments of your choice (red, black, white...). Your children will have many possibilities and will be able to make the mixtures they want!

Upcycling and DIY activities with BeautyMix... 

First idea : homemade Bee's wrap !

Create your own "cellophane" style packaging using note beeswax ? It's possible ! Your children will be able to pack their snack for school without plastic! For this more eco-responsible alternative, you will need:

  • From a piece of organic cotton fabric. You can buy this fabric in a haberdashery or reuse an old t-shirt from your child.

  • A bag of beeswax

Preheat your oven to 100 degrees and place your piece of fabric on a plate, itself covered with parchment paper. Place a few beeswax flakes evenly on your piece of fabric. Put your plate in the oven and leave it for 3 to 4 minutes. The beeswax will melt all over the fabric. This will be lightly coated and its texture will allow you to wrap the food of your choice.

An alternative embodiment to the iron is also possible.

This fabric can be kept for a few months and can be washed in cold or lukewarm water! Practical, right? And ecological !

Second idea : Trivet made of corks !

Why not reuse the bamboo caps from your empty BeautyMix containers to make great trivets? A fun, simple and useful activity!

For this activity, you need to assemble all your caps by simply gluing them with a strong glue that can be found in supermarkets, in the "DIY" or "creative hobbies" departments. Put a dot of glue on one side of your caps and assemble them in turn.

For a more colorful trivet, your child can paint it by hand or use a spray to spread the color evenly.

And you, which of these creative activities are you going to try out with your child? Do not hesitate to share your ideas and images of your achievements with us! We wish you a great family vacation! :)
