DIY Kool-Aid Lip Gloss (In Under 10 Minutes)!

At this busy time of year, I'm only interested in two words when it comes to DIY anything - quick and easy.  Let me tell you, this recipe embodies both of those words!  With just four ingredients, in less than ten minutes, you have a gift-worthy product that a six-year-old can make.  In fact, my six-year-old did make the lip gloss pictured above.  When she was finished, she even modeled it for us:

I found this recipe on Adventures In All Things Food and my daughter and I totally fell in love.  Kool- Aid + coconut oil + sugar + water = one happy little girl that can pick the color and flavor of her homemade lip gloss.  It doesn't get much better than that, folks.  The coconut oil in the lip gloss softens lips and gives them a nice shine, while the Kool-Aid provides a gentle stain.  Make sure to follow Andrea's instructions on how to combine the mixture, though - I tried a few different ways, and hers was by far the best.  Also, if you do let your six-year-old make the lip gloss, and you have beige counters like me, do yourself a favor and put a plastic placement underneath the mixing station.  Kool-Aid stains! :)
