The moments leading up to when your child’s guests arrive and are filled with the wonder and excitement that can best be experienced by a child’s imagination. Even something as simple as a backyard barbecue can become a magical wonderland for the little ones.
Often, our entertainers walk into birthday parties with their big box of crafts and find themselves swarmed with eager and curious kids who can’t wait to uncover the creativity dwelling just out of reach. (Spoiler for the parents: the most magical thing inside that box is usually face paint).
If you’ve ever stared at a painting and felt emotion pulled from you, perhaps you can relate to the evocative power of art. Well, face painting is no different for the little ones. It sets the tone of magic and kicks the excitement level up a notch. Here’s how:
Have the Birthday Child painted just before the guests arrive:
When your young party goers walk in, they’ll see their friend, cousin, or classmate’s face painted with beautiful colors and creative pictures and be filled with inspiration for their own designs. It kicks the party off right and makes your little birthday princess (or prince) feel extra special.
Bonus***Try having the birthday child painted with a design that matches the theme of their party. Our face painters know more than 50 designs and characters and can easily paint your little one to match their favorite TV show, superhero, or comic book character.
All that color makes your party photos POP!
There’s nothing better than going back year after year and looking through old photos of your kids from years past. It’s also just as rewarding to share those photos with friends and family that can’t make it to the party that day but still want to savor the excitement. Make your party photos extra colorful and bring a little more creativity to the party with a splash of color on each and every child’s face.
Face painting is for the shy kids too
Sometimes, when we come to a party, we meet a few shy children who would rather not have somebody painting their face. Face painting is an inclusive activity that doesn’t leave anybody out. If your child doesn’t want full face paint, we can also create beautiful designs with arm paint or simple cheek art.
It’s also worth mention to the mommies and daddies that all our face paint is water-based, hypoallergenic, and washes off with simple soap and water.
Face painting gives party guests and the birthday child something special to remember
Many of our designs include bling gems, so children have a small token to take with them after the party. It’s a reminder of the fun that happened and will follow them for days to come. Some children even like collecting and trading the small keepsakes.
Face painting is the perfect party activity whether that child is celebrating their 1st birthday or their 10th birthday. To book a face painter for your next party, please click here!
