That’s when I found Kiss Naturals.
Kiss Naturals offers DIY Craft Kits are locally made and produced in Canada and all the products are all-natural and have no added fillers, additives, dyes or synthetics. With 7 different products to choose from in two different sizes (mini and large) there’s sure to be something for every child.
The first kit we tested was the Large Lava Lip Gloss kit. Even though it’s recommended for kids 6+, at 5 and a half, Artemis was able to complete the 5 easy steps all by herself in less than 7 minutes. The only tricky part was the pouring of the oils into the lip gloss applicator. Max even got involved by being in charge of shaking everything together.
As for the end product, Artemis was very pleased with the deep maroon/purple colour (we added about two scoops of powder) and it smelled lovely (we added the minimum drop recommendation). Less is more for this Mom and both of us were really pleased with the outcome. It was so nice to see her so happy applying her “makeup”.
Next up was the large Glycerine Soap Kit and it was popular with both The Kids. They both loved the fact that they had four molds to choose from; butterfly, heart, bear and flower and could have cared less about the colouring and fragrance. Speaking of which, if you’re not a fan, you can just leave one and/or both out and it will still be fun for the kids to make.
This kit required adult assistance as the glycerine need to be melted in the microwave. Fortunately, it only took 10 seconds so The Kids didn’t lose interest in the least. I let them add in and stir the colouring and fragrance but I poured the glycerine into the molds. Not so much because I didn’t want them to burn themselves** but because I didn`t want wax all over my countertop.
The soap took more than the suggested time of 15 minutes to harden but that didn’t matter one bit. What did matter was that Max got to have his soaps coloured green (aqua) and Artemis got a pinky-red colour. It was easy for The Kids to pop the soaps out of the silicone mold and they played with them all day until they begged to have a bath. Again, no complaints from me.
Recommended for ages 6+, I’m sure that kids aged 5 (at least) and right up to tweens would love to explore their creative side with these kits from Kiss Naturals. And, the great part is that you can win a kit for someone you know!

Thanks to big sister Marcella for helping make this activity so much fun.
* When I say “safe for kids”, I mean that I can pronounce all the ingredients, understand why they’ve been added and don’t have a problem with Artemis being exposed to them”.
** While the wax was hot, it cooled down almost immediately so that The Kids were able to hold the beaker it was in immediately afterwards.
