I'm having a girly night tonight with my friend and was hoping to include both of my children.
Since I have 1 boy and 1 girl I am a little stuck, my daughter (who is 2) of course will happily join in with mini facials and getting her nails painted etc.
However I am not sure what to do with my boy who will be 4 next week, he is obviously against any form of personal grooming!!

Does anyone have any suggestions to included him with out him feeling like a girl!!

Can you do an activity like making cookies or something? All kids get along with that stuff.

Face painting?

I know many little boys like having their nails painted - black or blue might be preferable to pink but who knows?!
He may also enjoy a bit of a play with ome old make up - if not how about face paints?
Temporary tatoos are always good fun too.

Also your 2 year old would get a mini facial or a mani? Mine would have no interest in the vaguest way of beauty products.

Really? Do you always segregate your children so rigidly by their gender?

ooo face painting will go down well I hadn't thought of that thanks, and I know it makes me a wuss but I can't bare the thought of cooking as I have carpet everywhere and they are so messy bless them!!
My Daughter loves it, really it's only the nail polish she is interested in but it's an excuss to get her to let me cut her nails!!
And Brainonastick, the segregation is not my doing, my Son is completely against anything he deems "girly", and it is of course his choice

Why can't they both do exactly the same? Why can't he have a mini facial etc?

Misread the last sentence - less angry now! Still, I think it's sad that he already has such a strong reaction to anything deemed 'girly'
