Independence Day Craft: Face Painting

0

Have children don their paint shirts. Using red, white and blue
face paint, paint freedom symbols on each child’s face. Use a
separate paint brush for each color. You may want to paint flags,
fireworks, smiley faces, crosses or stars.

Keep face paint away from children’s eyes, and tell children to
keep their hands away from their painted faces until the paint is
dry.

Here’s an easy, inexpensive face paint recipe:

  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • Food coloring

Mix shortening and cornstarch until there are no lumps. If
mixture is too thick, add a few drops of water; if too thin, add
1/4 teaspoon of shortening at a time.

Divide mixture into three bowls. Use food coloring to make one
bowl of red paint and one bowl of blue paint. The remaining bowl is
your white paint. Paint can be refrigerated in a sealed plastic
container for up to three days.
