How to Do Face Painting - the Butterfly (2)

Butterfly face painting is really popular among kids. About 3 weeks ago, we went to a baby party and the hosts had face painting as one of the activities. My 2 girls were enthusiastic about it and were among the first ones to have their face painted.

Thanks Richard for the photo.

Thanks Richard for the photo.

I know I have already made a post on how to do butterfly face painting before with a video from You Tube but the designs that were done on my kids this time were a little different. I observed carefully how it was done and let me enumerate the steps here. You can go to my previous post linked above if you wish to see a video of how it was done.  

Step 1: Put background face paint using slightly wet foam for the wing color. In the photo above, pink and orange were used.

Step 2: Use a paint brush and black face paint to outline the wings of the butterfly. Put the antennae and head design of the butterfly in between the eye area. 

Step 3: Use another paint brush to put dotted designs on the wings of the butterfly. You may optionally put make-up glitters.


The kids will enjoy this activity !!

Yes, they do. Though I have one daughter who did not like to have the face paint.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
