At my son’s School Fair last week, both my children decided to wait patiently at the face painting table. We had used face paints at home before but my daughter had never had her face painted by someone else before. She sat perfectly still, with her eyes shut and was a very excited little girl when she saw that she had a, “Pretty butterfly,” on her face. My son, with his alter-ego: ‘Super Spy Blue’ was very pleased with his blue eye mask design. However, as the School Fair was on between 6pm and 8pm, it meant that these artistic escapes from reality had to be wiped off before bedtime or risk being wiped all over their pillows. We had two pretty miserable children!
Fortunately, they were persuaded to calm down and cheer up before bedtime with the promise that I would paint their faces the next day, and the day after, if they so wished. So I did. Two happy children again!
After face painting,I even painted their arms. My son designed his own, ‘Super Spy Blue,’ arm band, with built in computer and buttons.
We followed the Snazaroo handbook that came with our face paints to start with but now that I am getting more confident with painting their faces, I think we shall start making up more of our own designs soon!
Disclosure: I have written about Snazaroo face paints as I love this brand. I was not asked to write this post and I was not compensated in any way. I just think they are great face paints!
