Make-your-own lip gloss

TUESDAY: DIY Fruity Lip Balm

This likely could be the last year that Grace has a full-out birthday party. She is turning 10, and I’m thinking the celebrations after this will be a bit smaller.

» 1/2 cup vegetable shortening

» 1 scoop powdered drink mix in your favorite flavor

» Lip gloss jars (Available at

Clarify the vegetable shortening by heating it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir in the drink mix. Pour the mixture into a lip gloss jar. Let the mixture harden for 10 minutes and your lip gloss is ready! You can decorate the jars with fun stickers and sparkles! Lasts up to six months unrefrigerated.

COMING WEDNESDAY: Homemade vanilla
