Recently, I received a bottle of Piggy Paint “Girls Rule” nail polish and Piggy Paint nail polish remover. It is water based, non-toxic, non-flammable and odorless. As you all know, I love an American Made product and Piggy Paint is proudly made in the USA. Interestingly enough, Piggy Paint was created by a stay-at-home mom of two young girls who saw traditional nail polish eat through a styrofoam plate and she searched for a safer alternative.
I treated my 13 year old to a mini spa day at home and she really loved all of the one-on-one pampering. Best of all, it was nice not being bombarded with overbearing fumes from traditional polishes and acetone based polish removers. We had such a great time browsing and shopping on the website, we bought the Girls Rule! gift set and Ghouls Wanna Have Fun Gift Pack.

Fine Motor Skills
Let your child paint your fingernails or toenails. If you're worried about it looking (well, like a child painted your nails), opt for the toenails you can always put socks on in public! This helps with her fine-motor skills and gives her a chance to exert her independence.
Are you trying to teach your child color names? Paint her nails with the specific color youre working on (such as red) and declare it a Red Day. All day long, point out objects in her environment that match her nails, and encourage her to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath color tablet to make her bath water red. Once she's mastered that color, paint her piggies a new color.
Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why not putpatterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you're working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow Piggy Paint on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, M&Ms, crayons, beads-use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start out with color patterns and then attempt other categories, such as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colors or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.
Does your daughter play any sports? Perhaps she has a favorite high school, collegiate, or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with her teams colors to show her support.
