GIRLY-GIRL Stuff Party Favors

Lip Gloss

Ingredients 1/2 cup Crisco solid shortening 1 package sweetened Kool-Aid A tiny piece of lipstick (optional)

Directions Melt Crisco shortening and lipstick in microwave in a glass or ceramic bowl. Slowly add the Kool-Aid, stirring constantly. Using small plastic jars with lids or small plastic cups with lids (ask your local deli for 1 ounce size) and cap tightly.

Bubble Bath

Ingredients 1/4 cup clear "unscented" (non-fragrant) shampoo 3/4 cup water 1 tsp salt Fragrance oil (optional) -- 1 to 2 drops

Directions Mix water and shampoo slowly until it is well blended. Add salt and mix thoroughly. Pour into squeezable plastic bottles and label.

Little Ladies Peach Preserve Shower Gel

Ingredients 1/4 Cup Foaming Concentrate 3/4 Cup Water 3/4 Teaspoon Salt 1 Teaspoon Apricot Kernel Oil 1/4 Teaspoon Peach Fragrance Oil Orange Food Color (or red and yellow)

Directions Mix Foaming Concentrate and water in a bowl, stirring gently until well blended. Add oils and color. Stir. Add salt, if you'd like it thicker add salt a 1/4 teaspoon at a time until the mixture is the consistency you desire. (A plastic bottle or plastic bottle with pump works great.)

Little Ladies Black Cherry Bath Salts

Ingredients Cup Rock Salt 1 Teaspoon Liquid Glycerin 1/2 Teaspoon Cherry Fragrance Oil Red Food Color

Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper, spread salts out evenly on it and allow to dry for at least 24 hours, preferably 48 hours. Package and store in a closed container. (Use about 1/4 cup of bath salts per bottle. Glass bottles work better than plastic). Tie pretty ribbon around neck of jar. Add a tag with directions (sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoon under running water.)

Bath Salts

Ingredients 1 cup Epson salts (from your pharmacy) 15 drops Fragrance oil Food coloring (any color)

Directions Place all the ingredients into a Ziplock bag, seal tightly and massage to work the ingredients together. When well mixed, pour into plastic or glass jars or bottles.

I like the Lipgloss idea. Do you think that would be okay for a 7yr olds party? How much will that recipe make?

Thanks, Tina
