Crafting with Kids: Fun & Fruity Facial Masks

Here's a fun recipe to make and use with children from the Natural Beauty Workshop. They will love mixing and smashing the soft fruit into a pulp, not to mention smearing the messy concoction across their little faces.  Make sure to keep childhood allergies in mind when picking the ingredients for this recipe, as some kids are allergic to certain fruits and berries.
Banana Ingredients
Directions
In a small mixing bowl, combine 1 teaspoon each of White Kaolin Clay, Oat Flour, and Powdered Milk.  Add 3 - 4 tablespoons of fruit (choppped so that it will mash easily), and a few drops of water.  Give your child a large spoon or spatula to mash with and let them go to town, squishing the fruit and powders together into a beautiful mess.  Carefully apply the mixture to your faces, avoiding the eyes, mouth, and nostrils.  Allow the mask to dry for 5 - 10 minutes, then gently wipe off the mixture with a moist washcloth.  Rinse your faces well, than apply any toner or moisturizer you like. Be sure to take some pictures of your mini spa day.  You'll look adorable with matching fruity faces.
