K is for Kiss

K is for Kiss (9)

Veronika loves to play with the makeup under the bathroom sink, so today I decided to let her have free reign with a tube of old lipstick. We even threw in some early letter recognition and phonics!

To start, I drew a big letter K on white paper and cut it out.

Then I showed her how to apply lipstick first on mommy and then on herself. This girl loves to make herself up!

Now we each gave the K a kiss, and I emphasized the beginning letter sound as I told her what we were doing. She thought this was so silly! I added lots of kiss marks so our K was covered.

There was still a little lipstick left in the tube, which she could use like a paintbrush on an extra piece of paper.

She also loved taking the tube cap off and on again, which was great for fine motor skills.

Who knew a tube of old lipstick was a great toy for a toddler!
