Facepainting - Quick Fun

Pin It

Sometimes life is busy and I don't have time to think and plan cool play stuff, let's face it sometimes I feel like I don't have time to go to the loo without a little person offering to 'keep me company'!  On those days I need some 'quick fun' to keep the boys busy and one go to activity is facepainting!

I don't have a lot of facepainting talent...

...but, it does bring a lot of fun for my boys....

.... and it definately enhances their imaginary play - who could resist those roaring tigers!

Or not want to go on a treasure hunt with this pirate...

... or walk the plank for this little guy!

Stuck for ideas?  We use Snazaroo facepaints and I've just discovered they have an iphone app!  Get the app here, or go to the step by step instructions for tigers, butterflies or pirates on their website.
