Jenea over at I can teach my child had a great post on homemade face paint that she got from The Preschooler's Busy Book. ( which I have order ). So of course we had to try it out on this rainy afternoon.
I grabbed four small bowls. The kids mixed together 1 tsp corn starch and 1/2 tsp milk. I think we added a little more milk. oops. After that was mixed well we added 5 drops of food coloring.
Here is what we came up with. Note: I am not a face painter. We will be doing this again so we will see how I improve. But its a start!!
My attempt for Spider Man.
C doesn't know who the Hulk is. But he wanted green. He was going for a monster.
I later added red lines like his friend with the Spider Man face.
Little miss independent (R) would not let me do it at all.
F wanted blue with red lines.
Note : the boys in the back playing out their new roles.
T sat still and let me draw a sun and a star.
Too cute not to add!
And of course they all wanted to paint me, so there you go.
Note: the rainy-humid hair.
Wanted to be like her big brother.
