Greasepaint

Make different paint colors, then use them to make fun faces on one another!

Tip: Smocks are a good way to prevent messy clothes for this fun activity.

  • 4 Tablespoons shortening
  • 10 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly
  • Food coloring

Mix all ingredients together to make a colored paste.

Store in an airtight container.

Be sure to have a mirror handy to view the creations as they appear!

The paint wipes off easily with a soft cloth or paper towel.

This is also a good alternative to a mask on Halloween.
