Last week both my daughters were at Lacrosse camp, playing in the blazing sun and heat for hours. Little Lulu (6-years-old) was certainly the hit of the camp. She brought her American Girl Doll the 2nd day, fully decked out like a lacrosse player. At $38 you can be sure I was not the one who purchased the outfit, that was my mom.There was a contest each day of camp and the second day was ‘decorate a water bottle’ day. Smart Jr made a penguin and won 2nd place.Their favorite day was definitely crazy hair day. I put a bunch of twists in Lulu’s hair and wrapped chenille rods around each one. It was quick and easy and that was perfect for me after doing her sister’s hair.Smart Jr went full on CRAZY and won 1st place by a landslide. She was rocking a donut (doughnut) on a plate. In. Her. Hair. I had never attempted anything like this before and it took me at most 15 minutes to figure it out and finish.
How to Make Your Hair into a Donut:
1. Put hair in a high ponytail. We did it slightly to one side.
2. Cut a hole in a small plate and slip the ponytail through the hole.
3. Wrap a sock (or 2 or 3) around the base of the ponytail to make a sock bun. We had never done a sock bun before! Tuck the end of the sock into itself. Of course you could also use one of those sock bun products, but we didn’t have one.
6. Make chocolate mix by adding hair gel to chocolate. Our chocolate was Hershey bars melted in the microwave. Let cool.
And after a long 4 days of lacrosse camp, she had her last a 2-day tournament with her summer team. They finished 2nd in the toughest division and the girls were super excited!!! Don’t you always have the kids do one picture with silly faces? That’s Smart Jr being held in the air by her teammate.
