      My daughter absolutely had fun painting her face. It was very easy to make and very easy to clean off her face too. I didn't use cold cream b/c with the shortening just glides off the skin anyway. I don't knw what I was expecting, but I was hoping that it would dry like paint. I wouldn't let her run around the house with it on in fear that she'd get it all over the furniture or carpet. So unfortunately, it came off as fast as it went on. But I did manage to get some pictures of her cheeks first. Thanks for a great rainy day activity
