When I was babysitting the grandkids Saturday night, I brought along my facepainting kit because they just love getting their faces done. Little one asked to be a butterfly. Easy enough. There's a photo in the kit and I've done it many times for them. Older GD flabbergasted me with a request to be a ladybug. How the heck was I to do that? She was quite happy with the result. I think I need some practice. And maybe a nearby picture of a ladybug!

Where does this Grammy find a face painting kit?

Kajem, I just picked one up at my art supply store when I was there buying acrylics. I expect you can probably get them at craft stores? I don't personally shop at Walmart (don't like their employment practices)but when I Googled "face painting kits", up popped Walmart with the same kit I bought for $14.99. That was Walmart Canada, so the US price may be less.

Getting them to stay still enough to do a good job is a problem.

And a slightly fuzzy partial job photo of the little butterfly. Still missing the body and antennae at this point.

Awwww, they're so cute!

Do they know how lucky they are to have you for a Grammy?

Why, thank you, PPGA! I do a food craft with them as well each time I stay with them. Saturday we made little men in Santa hats using in order of the way they're threaded on a stick: miniature marshmallows, ends of strawberries, banana slices, and big green grapes. After eating quite a lot of those, the little one said, "Nana T, I believe I might turn into a fruit." I had to bite the inside of my cheek!!!!
