Brain Balance with Henna

Image

Art is an amazing way to become right and left brained balanced… How you ask? By practicing with your non dominate hand. This small challenge really gets us out of autopilot and well soon enough you will be ambidextrous! To see a time lapse video please check out my Facebook or my Instagram IMG_0304.JPG

Henna painting with an educational twist: great for homeschooling

Image

Henna paste is made from the crushed leaves of a desert Bush.  As gorgeous as it is in body art, it also a great homeschooling tool to teach our children math and science with an artistic twist.

This is a great party idea or a wonderful homeschooling project, either way its a lot if fun.

Math is covered by measuring the ingredients, science is experienced through learning about the plants, mixing the ingredients and watching it turn from powder to paste. I throw in a little bit of biology when we cover how the dye seeps into the layers of the skin and finally… the best part… we paint daddy with a paint brush.

They also love painting themselves, If you have children you already know this.  Once they wash up, they are left with moisturized, sun protected skin and a beautiful self created temporary tattoo.
