I keep a stash of face painting crayons in the cupboard. You don’t have to be in any way artistic to do face painting on young children. These drawings took me 3 minutes. The kids wanted to paint my face too and I almost said no. Then I thought, why not! This entire activity took less than 10 min but opened up hours of role play. I’m learning that if I invest a little time, doing something creative with the kids, it sets up the entire tone of the day.
Here are some of super simple designs I use:
Even my older girls were happy with my VERY simple creations.
Tip: Make-up remover is ideal for wiping the crayon off.
If you have the correct type of paints and you fancy trying something more complex, I found step by step face painting instructions for these designs.
