Fun & Easy Paints for Children
by Deborah Shelton

In a child's mind, any time is a good time to paint. With
these easy-to-make and easy-to-clean paint recipes, adults
will have to agree.

1. Easy Face Paint
This is the easiest to make (and easiest to clean) recipe
for face paint. Separate colors with a muffin tin or an egg
carton. Place a spoonful of cold cream into each cup. Add 1
or 2 drops of different colors of food coloring to the cold
cream, and stir. Apply the face paint using a clean
paintbrush or cotton swabs.

2. Spiffy-Sniffy Watercolors
Your artwork will smell terrific with this simple
watercolor recipe. Use a small cup for each color. Mix one
package of powdered drink mix (Kool-Aid) with 2 tablespoons
of warm water for each color. Stir until the powder
dissolves. Once all of the colors are prepared, use a clean
paintbrush to paint sweet-smelling pictures.

3. Window Paint
Turn your windows, patio doors and mirrors into works of
art. Mix together equal parts dishwashing liquid and
washable liquid paint or powdered tempera. Children will
love the process of painting and adults will love the end
result: the paint wipes off easily with a dry paper towel.

4. Foamy Bath Paint
Encourage children to paint undersea adventure scenes while
taking their evening baths. To make bath paints, simply mix
together shaving cream with a drop of food coloring. Dip a
paintbrush, or better yet, your fingers, into the mix and
start creating!

Fun Tip:
To level the playing field between painters of different
ages and artistic abilities, place paintbrushes between
your toes and paint with your feet!
