Boredom Buster, or Desert Beauty Treatment

Are your kids bored?  Here's a simple solution.  Take one prickly pear cactus and pick all the fruit off it.

Then, mash the fruit in a bowl.

Paint cactus juice on face, fingernails, feet, cement, or whatever.

Check out the results.

Pretend to be an Indian at war or a fine lady at the beauty spa. Rinse off with water.
What a fun big sister!


  1. Looks like great fun!

  2. Hi Sally~

    Thought I'd stop in and say "hello." I've been cloistered away in my own little world lately - not doing too much blogging. Looks like your girls had a great time with the Prickly Pear Cactus! My youngest is always wanting to put on make-up, and the the other day I let her put some eye shadow on me! It was turquoise, mind you, but not too bright. Maybe we can find something out in our yard that she can mash up. I'll try and remember that next time she tells me she's bored!

    Blessings to you and your family~


  3. I thought this would stain!-like pomegranates


  4. LOL, I was just waiting for the after picture, when the girls found out that it stained the face lol. Glad it washed off. This spring they could come up and do mud packs - people pay big bucks for this kind of stuff. There you go, you could have the girls crush up the fruit and bottle it & sell it as a natural facial treatment - you'll be millionaires. LOL

  5. However all the prickly pear cactus are currently buried under several feet of snow...and there's more coming down now.

  6. Where's the pic of you with a red face? I know you did it too, don't pretend.

    I am impressed by your new-found dedication to exercise. I also started the week telling myself I'd exercise 3 x a week (for now). I have this You on a Diet workout DVD that I LOVE! It's so short and hard enough. But I've only done it once. Oh dear. I should do it today then huh? I am going to check out this thing you are doing on whoever's website it is. You know what I mean. Take care.
