Posted in Holly's fun corner


Next time you buy some Smarties remember to lick the red ones then smudge  them on your lips so that it looks like you’re wearing lipstick. So go on have some fun !

Pack of Smarties in hand, Holly is ready for the lesson.


Hold the Smartie carefully in your fingers and lick away. (Try to resist the temptation to eat the Smartie – remember: this is lipstick!)


Here comes the science part. Rub the Smartie on your lips – but be careful of your nose!



Excellent! Smartie-red lips! Who needs lip gloss?


Lippy-tastic Holly!




Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam

  1. I feel I must rigorously investigate this phenomenon. I appreciate you offering me the opportunity to buy smarties in the name of science! Off now to the corner shop…
