Homemade Hair Chalk - Color for your Locks!

Hello my farm followers! If your kids are anything like mine, they ADORE the new hair color craze! For a more lasting color change, my girls have tipped their hair with Jerome Russell's "Punky Color". It lasts about a month, is very bright at first, and then gradually fades out. It shows up MUCH better on blonde hair (which they have) rather than brunette. You paint it on with a brush, (We use a small sponge brush and just throw it away afterwards!) let it sit a bit, and then rinse it out with water. BE CAREFUL not to get it on anything else! But here's a great way to add temporary color to your locks - use oil pastel crayons! Just lay your hair on a piece of paper, and scribble away. Use long strokes, following down the length of your hair. Simple, easy to do, and it washes out with your next shampoo. It's great for matching your hair to an outfit, or for spirit days at school. Here's my daughter Rowan, tipping her hair with green and blue for Earth Day: We also made Earth Day recycled toilet tissue tube kazoos, with only 3 items - *empty toilet tissue tubes, *wax paper circles, * rubberbands. She used the oil pastels to decorate the kazoo too! What are you doing today for Earth Day? ******************************************************************************************************************************************** "And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." ~Khalil Gibran
