The face paint comes out every Halloween and under a skilled hand transforms human children into creatures both sweet and scary. It’s powerful stuff — with ancient roots, after all — that’s perfectly attuned to the season of mischief and disguise, but there’s no reason it should live in the dark the other 364 days of the year. Face paint, like dinosaurs and Legos, is a staple of childhood that can engage, entertain, and amuse kids in any season, indoors or out. Face paint is also a great way to make Zoom birthdays and family gatherings more engaging and fun for kids.
If you’re intimidated by the idea of face paint, don’t be. All it takes is a steady hand, a willing child, and a strong, basic design. We’ve taken care of that last part with this Fatherly list of easy face-paint designs. You’ll soon be a master of the art and be branching out from basic dragons to advanced Fortnite.
