With my little one’s birthday just around the corner and knowing her love for face painting I wanted hire someone for her party that would make all the kids whatever they wanted to be (a tiger, spiderman, butterfly etc.), then I saw the costs…. So I decided to look into making my own face paint and discovered how easy it was to do!
Here is how to make your own face paint:
Simply buy some washable paint – always best to get it from some of the bigger department stores as they tend to have big brands for a smaller price.
PLEASE ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU ARE PURCHASING PAINT THAT WILL NOT REACT WITH YOUR CHILDS SKIN. Mont Marte has SKIN FRIENDLY paint that you can purchase, please visit here for more detail > montmarte.net
Purchase some moisturizing lotion – again check out the bigger department stores to see what they have on sale.
Get yourself some little plastic tubs that have lids so you can mix up individual colours and they won’t dry out.
Then simply mix equal portions of the skin friendly washable paint with the moisturizing lotion in the individual tubs and voilà you have made your own face paint.
So I had solved how to get away with a nice cheap option for the paint, now how about the painter? Well that was easy – a few of the older kids that were invited wouldn’t want to be involved in the little kids games so why not make them artists for the day? Give them something to do and solve my face painter problem – win, win!
Do you have any tips and tricks to add? Maybe you have another cheap and easy idea for the kids?
