"You are so creative!" I have heard that phrase constantly since I was little. DIY, Refashioning, Crafting, Sewing, Woodworking. I love it all! Now I have a place to keep my favorite projects or ideas organized and share them with you!

Hair Chalking Today, Gone Tomorrow

Summer has been so busy! So busy I have not been blogging which is crazy. But it is a good busy so I will not complain.
I did however want to blog up a quick little project that you may have some fun with 4th of July weekend.
Hair Chalking. Yep that is right. Hair Chalking. This safe and temporary hair color technique is done with plain old sidewalk chalk.

Get your sidewalk chalk wet with water and then rub on the strands of hair you want to be colored. My daughter did some pink chunks.

My son sporting the all important summer little boy Mohawk went with blue.

My youngest even did a little chunk of his favorite color yellow right up front.
Best thing about this hair color is that it washes out completely with one wash.

Honestly my kids slept on it that first night and most of it had disappeared by morning without even washing.

This is much safer and cheaper than hair dye, super temporary unlike using Kool-aid, not messy to do and easy to boot.

Please note that even though your kids are acting the same way they always do in the grocery store it does seem twice as rotton and bad when their hair is funky colored, and you may get a few extra stares and glares from older people when you are used to sweet comments from them about your cute kiddos.
It is a good one day lesson for the kids on how to not judge people on their appearance but on what is in their hearts.

I am sure the Mohawk will be sporting red white and blue stripes for the 4th of July.
