This is what my daughter looked like when I picked her up from school today.
When I first got to the school, I stood outside the door with the other moms wondering why the teacher’s hadn’t opened the door yet?
By the time they opened the door…there was quite the line. Try as I might, I couldn’t see my little girl at all. Patiently, I waited for the other mom’s to get their little ones so I could have my turn (did you know Mom is a rock star at pick up time? It’s true!).
The first child that left the room this afternoon had a few green marks on his face. I immediately assumed that he must have gotten carried away with a green marker and kept trying to peer into the class to see my Lizzie.
The next child that left had a bit more color on their face, and I started wondering why they weren’t encouraging proper marker use in this classroom?
Then I see my Lizzie. My beautiful, vibrant feminine little Lizzie. She looks like she has a beard!
Turns out, they played with face paint today. The teachers allowed them to put face paint on their faces using mirrors. What an awesome idea! They must have allowed the kids to keep the face paint on to show mom and dad. So of course, I had to snap a picture! Luckily it came off super easily with a baby wipe…but I let her wear it for a bit!
What a great idea for a fun rainy day craft!
If you don’t have face paint (you can probably find face paint super cheap right now at any store that carries Halloween costumes! Or these face paint sticks on Amazon are pretty neat), you could just let them use some of your older make up (provided it’s not waterproof…yeesh, that would be a mess).
Anyway, I just had to share my little bearded lady and a fun little craft (courtesy of Lizzie’s teachers!) with all of you!
