Face paint stencils can be a great addition to any party with kids or it can be the main reason for a party.
I love doing art project with the kids. Children lack the inhibitions that we adults have and their creative minds come up with amazing ideas.
Butterflies are the most popular images when working on crafts for kids. They offer every opportunity to work with the most wonderful colors and just by nature butterflies are wonderful. So much like children.
The kids will get so excited you might even get them to sit still for a minute. Well, maybe!
Don't miss the video below for more fun ideas with the butterfly!
Just print these free stencils for face painting and don’t forget that you can re-size them to fit any size on a copy machine.
Also, cover your paper stencil with a clear coating like clear shelf liner before you cut out the openings. This way you can use the stencil over and over. After the paint dries you can wash them off with a damp cloth.
I actually use this as a great way to get the kids involved when we have Football Tailgating Parties. You know, all the adults are around doing their thing and watching the game. The kids get bored so why not give them something fun to do.
Make sure to only use paint approved for face painting. Read all the instructions on any package of paint you purchase. And don’t miss this article and more freebies at Temporary Tattoo Stencils where you’ll find another butterfly stencil.
