A Use for Old Makeup: Painting Rocks

Do you have some old make-up you are about to get rid of? Maybe you can get one last bit of fun out of it. We used some old stuff I had lying around to paint faces on rocks.

M thought that was pretty fun, but honestly not as entertaining as painting my knee! It was a fun mess. Have you made any creative activities for your family out of things you were about to throw away? I'd love to hear about them!

This is a great use for old makeup, and your faces are so cute! Here are a couple repurposing projects we've done at our house:

i let my girls do this to my face one afternoon a few weeks ago. they loved putting the makeup on me ;) then...their dad walked in, heehee! i think i may have scared him, especially since they had already put about a hundred little hair clips throughout my hair, lol! Fun times! ;)
