Homemade Face Paint


The phrase that terrifies my husband most is “I saw something on Pinterest“……   It normally means me making a bigger mess before things get back in order or some out there activity I have found to do with Alayna.

The latest one was 3 ingredient face paint.

Corn Starch (2 tsp)

Baby Lotion (1 tsp)

Food Colouring


The face paints were easy to make, but the amounts the recipe gave were not enough.  I had to add more baby lotion to even make it close to creamy.


She then asked me to paint a butter fly over her entire face… directing me  to which colors she wanted me to use.



The baby lotion does not make for the easy clean up the website said it would.


It left traces of the paint which lasted until bath time when we could take hot soapy water to it.

Over all she had a great time, and it was a successful activity.  One i would recommend to anyone who asks.
