Your kids will love it: make face paint at home!

Face painting is the favorite fun activity of every child. Whenever you participate in an event, you certainly can’t miss the face painters’ booths who paint butterflies, kittens or superheroes on your children’s face.

The good news is, you don’t have to wait for the festive occasions to make the little ones happy – you can make face paint at home using the following recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon body lotion
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • natural food coloring

This amount will be sufficient for painting one face.

Mix all the ingredients except for the food coloring in a small jar. If necessary, add more water to get a good, creamy texture, and then add the food coloring. If you want to make sure that the coloring won’t stain the skin, first try it on a smaller skin area.

You can apply the resulting paint on any part of the body using your hands or a sponge.
