So when your children say, "I want to paint." You don't need to run to the store to buy paints, just go to your kitchen cabinet and start mixing colors to make your own paint for kids.
Making paint for kids is a fun inexpensive activity for a kids party too. You could let the children take turns painting each others hands of faces. Alternatively, a grown up could set up a booth for painting and monitor the partygoers.
Painting is a great activity for kids anytime. Finger paints engage several senses such as seeing, touch, and even hearing the squishy sounds of the paint. While face painting with a brush encourages children to learn their colors and practice fine motor skills while having fun.
