This year’s Mother’s Day is set to be a low-key affair for most of us. But even though there won’t be any big dinners out or exciting family excursions, you can still celebrate at home by doing something fun with the kids.

Particularly for mummies with little girls, it’s a great opportunity to kick back, let your hair down and bond over playful, girly stuff. Here, we round up five beauty-related activities that mothers and daughters can indulge in together.

1. Experiment with Make-up

It’s common for girls to be curious about mummy’s make-up stash and want to emulate what you do. So why not give them the opportunity to get creative and express themselves through make-up colours?

Of course, many mums are rightfully apprehensive about chemicals and problematic ingredients that could be in regular make-up. To reduce the risk of adverse reactions, try these water-based and non-toxic play sets made for kids instead. If you want to be doubly sure, check through the ingredients list.

2. Paint Each Other’s Nails

Get artistic and have fun with colours! Embellish nails with stickers and sequins. The more advanced DIY manicurist can even try painting on designs like polka dots or swirls. Use water-based nail polishes for children that don’t contain chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene and ethyl acetate. They should also be peelable or removable with warm water so you don’t need to use removers with acetone.

3. Go Wild with Unicorn Hair

We know that kids, and especially little girls, love unicorn anything, right? So since school’s out, why not let them try out unicorn-style multi-hued hair using temporary hair chalk and hair crayons? They wash out clean with just regular shampoo, so no worries about colour disasters or stains on the pillow.
