preschool face maskThis past weekend I was blest to be the recipient of a spa treatment care of Scrubbing Bubbles.   Holly  invited me to join them at the Four Seasons! Boy, was I spoiled! I had never had a facial before. I loved having no kids for three hours part, lots of uninterrupted adult conversation and the peaceful setting! My favorite part however was the facial and the nifty mask I got to wear.   The heavy feeling on my eyes made me so sleepy (either that or my preschooler who woke me up in the night) irregardless, I set out to make my own! . . I made my template with a sippy cup to make the eye size, then bridged the eyes together. I used this template as a pattern and using some leftover satin, we cut our eye masks out of the fabric.   I used the smaller side of the cup to make an identical mini-mask for my daughter. I then sewed the mask pieces together, good size facing in, leaving a two inch gap at the top so that I could turn it right-side out and stuff the mask. After sewing the pieces together I cut tiny slits around the sides of the mask.   These helped the seam be even after it was turned right-side out. We then stuffed the mask (with rice) and sewed the top closed. Doused the mask with a few drops of lavender essential oils and viola – relaxation!

  1. Thanks for a very informative web site. Where else could I get that kind of information written in such an ideal way? I have a undertaking that I am simply now running on, and I have been at the look out for such information.

  2. BTW…I tried grabbing your button, but it wouldn’t show up in my sidebar…is it an issue with my WP blog? Do you know of any other WP sites that have your button? Just curious.

  3. What an awesome idea! I have three girls, and they have their own ‘spa days’. My middle daughter runs it. She has a name for her ‘spa’, and offers lunch, a facial, a back massage, manicure, pedicure (including a foot soak), and even has the soft music playing in the background. She found a recipe online and made her own homemade lip gloss, which she promotes to her customers, of course. At 10 yrs. old, she’s really got it goin’ on! You should smell her room when they’re done! Wait until I tell her about this mask… We’ll be making them for sure! Love your site, btw…saw you in a forum in the SITS community!
