Face Paint Pretend Play
How we did it:
- doll - an old doll that you don't mind staining
- washable paint and brushes
- baby lotion
- tray or plate
If you don't have any old dolls you can easily find a few at a thrift store for a dollar or two. Our paint dolls get used over and over again.
First we mixed a little baby lotion with kids' washable paints. This way they dry like face paint. They wipe off easily so you can start over again.
I cut up a new kitchen sponge for the kids to use to wash their dolls' faces.
My kids ask to do this almost every day. I just love hearing them ask their dolls "so, what would you like to be today?"
