Make those little faces even cuter!

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, block party, reunion or office picnic, face painting is a great way to treat and entertain the kids, and it’s easier than you might think!

With a few simple supplies and a little practice you can create professional looking faces, without the cost of hiring someone to do it for you.


  • Face Paints – use paints that are specifically made for face painting. Even though tempra paints may be mild, they could irritate the skin.
  • Brushes – make sure you have different shapes and sizes.
  • Sponges – a few “make-up” quality sponges will do.
  • Water & towel to clean your brushes between faces.
