Life is more fun if you get a little creative. When you don't "do" a lot of entertainment (by the world's standards), you start to have fun with the simple things in life.
Take for example, doing a little girl's hair. To me, it's fun to see what I can do for a "do.''
French braids are my preference because she has many short hairs that need corralling. When I first started doing them, even though I knew how to do them, with a wiggly child...easier said than done. I figured out that having a distraction was very helpful. Some barrettes, rocks & shells, or a fun colorful toy to play with helped me out while I did the following hairdos.
This is from one of the first times I did her hair...
One time I did a three French braid "do", another... a side part French braid...
Last week...a spiral, one continuous French braid...why not?
And today, a "crown" style that turned out really well!
Simple, frugal, and fun.
