Making our own natural skincare products is a fun and creative hobby that we can enjoy from the comfort of our own homes.
The beautiful thing about this hobby is that once you understand the basics and know where to get accurate and reliable information – plus a few good recipes – you can make some amazing products for a fraction of the price of shop-bought brands.
Plus, when it comes to occupying, entertaining and educating our children, learning to make a few simple products is an absolute winner!
Kids tend to love making biscuits, pancakes and cakes and they also usually love arts and crafts. There’s so much fun to be had at home with children, and the memories this creates is something to be savored – for our kids and ourselves!

If you are looking for some new activities to try, here are seven simple, DIY cosmetic recipes that you can make with your children.
If you do try these products out, please make sure to properly supervise your children and ensure you follow the recommended safety precautions.
