Child's Play Halloween Face Painting Photos

The kids are getting all excited about Halloween and Trick or Treating. Some of them are already trying to decide exactly what they might be for Halloween. Many children will be learning how to make your own Halloween costume, while others will be wearing Halloween costumes for kids.

The kids here are all excited about Halloween and dressing up to go trick or treating.

Let's follow them for a bit, while they play. Maybe, you will find some type of inspiration for making your own Halloween costume. If not, maybe you can join in this child's play as this little girl and little boy have fun creating Halloween face paintings that they think might be fun or even funny.

Use Paint that is Safe for Use on Faces

Even though, these kids used what they could find to paint their faces it was something that did wash off easy and did not cause any type of skin rashes it is always a good idea to use the proper kind of face paint when dressing up for Halloween. For instance, you can use different types of face paint in this easy-on easy-off non-toxic face painting kit. It is good practice to use paints that are non-toxic since, you never really know how something may affect the skin, eyes or mucus membranes until it is perhaps, to late.

Play it safe and use items you know are especially made for face painting and non-toxic.

Even Teens Love Face Painting

Before we get started viewing these various Halloween face painting photos, we would like to give thanks to our in-home Halloween face painting photographer. This photo was taken about halfway through the photo session. She was enjoying it as well, but soon got bored with the child's play, which is normal for teens I suppose. However, she told me before leaving for school this morning that she would be back for some child's play of Halloween face painting herself. (We'll see...)

Cat Face Painting

...for Halloween...

This little girl was helping to clean up a mess she made in the living room. Her dad says to her after she picked up some washable markers, "Bring me those markers and your face." I thought, "Uh oh!", when I saw the light bulb in the back of her mind go on.

Her dad and I got busy talking and the next thing we know, she comes back in the living room with her homemade Halloween cat face painting.

(Please, understand that I am not recommending washable markers for making your own Halloween face painting creations. It just happened this way here at home.)

This little fellow was here visiting and watching cartoons with the above face painting model. He wanted to get in on the child's play of Halloween face painting as well. So, here we have his rendition of being Harry Potter for Halloween. All he needs now is a Harry Potter child's costume to complete his look. I think he's adorable and makes a really cool Harry Potter lookalike.

Since, this was washable markers that the kids were playing with they would go to the bathroom and wash off their face painting and then apply another that they liked. Needless to say, these kids had a lot of fun during their face painting for Halloween costume ideas.

This is the magician...

After washing off the last session of at home Halloween face painting to discover what she might want to dress up as for Halloween, this little girl came back in with this on her face. I ask her what she was, she told me she was Mr. Weeping Crying Man. I'm not sure what she means, so I called this Halloween face painting - Sadness. I think maybe she was sad since, it wasn't already Halloween and she could not get out to trick or treat this evening, so that made her sad...

Wishing for Trick or Treating Time...

After telling her I liked the Magical face better the Professor sulked, and then painted a different face on.

Vampire Bride Face Painting

The vampire bride sleeps. Actually, it tugged at my heart to see her playing dead. I did not like it at all and then said so. (Maybe I should have kept quite.)

So, one day we were at the local Salvation Army store and she finds this wedding dress hanging on the rack. It does not fit right, but it was cheap and she wanted it to play in. She's played in it several times. However, she thought that being a vampire bride would be cool for this Halloween face painting session.

By the way, if you are wondering what the black box on her chest is, it is a plastic coffin. It came with a set of plastic Halloween utensils. She says, "A Vampire is not a vampire without her coffin." (Who am I to argue?)

It's all child's play...
