face painting

gather up
- face paints or an old eye pencil
- light shade lippy or gloss

Face painting is great fun but the imaginative play that follows can be hilarious. You don't have to be an artist, just a little black nose and whiskers will do the trick. Add a little pink lippy on the nose and lips and there you have it a pussy cat or a puppy dog. Woof woof, meow meow.

Mamma's lil' tip: take this rare 'stationary' opportunity to check out their little face. Spy any new freckles? And if you have older kids get them to try their hand at painting little bro.
