Lil Tip: Face Paint

It's much more fun to paint faces instead of paper. While your family may not be the Klum-Samuel clan, you certainly can share in their passion for face paint. Transform your tots into their favorite characters using a homemade medium that costs just pennies. Since practice makes perfect, there's no need for a makeup artist. A pair of pudgy lil hands, a mug, and an imagination are all it requires.

Take one tablespoon of shortening and two tablespoons of cornstarch and mix together until smooth, then add a dash of food coloring to your liking. Then use makeup brushes, a sponge, or the pads of your fingers to apply it to your child's face.

my mom used to teach nursery school and always had great ideas for face paint that wouldn't hurt kids at all cause you know how that stuff ends up in some kids mouth or eyes. i love how heidi isn't shy about getting her kids all into the spirit of things, and they always look adorable.
