This DIY Lipgloss only 2 ingredients is fantastic for a crafternoon or birthday party activity. Two ingredients (which you probably already have in your house already) make up this practical and fun activity. Plus, it makes for a great loot bag idea!
DIY Lipgloss only 2 ingredients
You will need:
- Small containers with snap on lids (available at dollar store in jewelry area)
- Popsicle sticks
- Bounty paper towel (available at drug stores and grocery stores)
- Petroleum jelly (available at drug stores and grocery stores)
- Liquid drink mix (available at grocery stores)
You’ll remember I mentioned this activity when I was live tweeting my #BountyCrafternoon.
- Remind kids to roll up their sleeves. Petroleum jelly is quite slick so if they get any on their fingers/clothing; simply wipe it away Bounty paper towel or wash with soap and water.
- Put down a sheet of Bounty at each place (because as you can see from the pictures…spills happen!). Bounty paper towel saved my table cloth and kept the mess in check.
- Scoop 2 teaspoons of petroleum jelly into your small container.
- Squirt one long squirt of liquid drink mix into the petroleum jelly. Be careful: the drink mix is concentrated to be careful not to squirt it on clothing. We used a cherry and grape flavour liquid drink mix. Wondering where to find this drink mix? I found it in the ice tea and drink mix section of our local grocery store. It’s a small bottle of concentrated drink mix.

- Using Popsicle stick mix the liquid drink mix and petroleum jelly together (it will smell pretty awesome).
We managed to make 24 small containers of DIY Lipgloss only 2 ingredients using this recipe. We played music. The kids chatted. We crafted. It was a super #BountyCrafternoon. I highly recommend!
Each tween girl went home with 2 lip gloss containers, a nail polish washer necklace (that DIY is in my Boredom Busters book and a compliment book (I’ll share the compliment book tutorial soon – it was a very girl-empowering activity which created a great keepsake).
