Do you want a simple, easy way to WOW your kids? This face painting activity is so much fun for an outdoor playdate or even a birthday party. It is so simple to throw together with a few supermarket ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
We used cornstarch, lotion, and diaper cream (zinc oxide). Mix it up until you get a thick, smooth consistency and add your food coloring! We used gel colors, but any coloring will do.
I loved that the white paste gave a beautiful pastel hue to the paint. I put our body paint in small containers with q-tips for application. Have some baby wipes nearby to wipe little hands. Put out acrylic mirrors (ours are from IKEA) and you are good to go for an afternoon of fun!
