    I won’t this year but I would if my sin wanted his face painted at this age it’s a waste so we don’t paint faces

  2. Deja Says:

    If my son wanted his face painted I would definitely make the paint myself. I just read an article that said store bought face paints contain metals, cadium which is linked to cancer, birth defects and brain damage, they also found mercury and lead. So I will never allow my son to put that stuff on his skin!

  3. Sarah J. Says:

    i don’t use the store bought face paints-i use crayola washable non-toxic markers. pretty sure it’s better than the paints :)

  4. cathy Says:

    Eh, I prefer not to do face painting. Costumes are just easier to take off and reuse.

  5. Rebecca O'Brien Says:

    Not for Halloween, but we did for our Easter Party at church this year! So much better.

  6. Alea Shinn Says:

    I don’t do face painting – but definitely recommend people make their own or buy some that doesn’t contain metal!

  7. Joan Says:

    Face painting is too hard to wash off. And I do not like putting foreign chemicals on my children’s faces!

  8. Laura Says:

    Now that’s an interesting idea! If my kiddos were older, I’d definitely be up for knowing what was going on their precious little faces. :)

  9. Robin O Says:

    Making face paints sounds fun–maybe we can try it out! Thanks for the great tips!

  10. Chelle Says:

    Thank goodness my son doesn’t like his face painted. He’s pretty young and we’ve only dressed him up 2x so far. I don’t like all the gunk in face paint and it’s really hard to remove which leads me to believe it’s not good to have on your skin. I’m not sure if I would make my own paint, but would probably give it a shot. I would probably be more willing to buy a natural face paint.

  11. Henry Says:

    No only because I can’t paint to save my life. Otherwise it sounds like a good idea for the pocket book and the child’s well being.

  12. Baylee Says:

    I would if I had a recipe.

  13. Heather Keane Says:

    My child doesn’t like his face painted, but last week got a ghost on his hand, so cute… I would Absolutely make some face painting…..I may make some for Liam’s school on Monday.Thanks…
