Today is my second "Frugal Friday" post! I promise I'll stop counting after this. =)
Sometimes entertaining small kids requires busy mommas like me to think outside the box. Something we do around here is draw whiskers on each other with eyeliner! My kids go from tigers, to mice, to cats and back to tigers all the while their imaginations are running wild for hours and hours (ok, maybe just half an hour, but it beats whining about being bored for half an hour AND it buys me some time in a pinch).
It's cheap and it washes off pretty easily, too. If it doesn't wash off in some places you can use eye make-up remover.
So there you have it. My brilliant, frugal idea, although I'm sure someone like Mrs. Bozo The Clown probably thought of it first.
