Made these for my boys birthday bash (their b-days are only a week apart so we had a combined party). We had a safari theme so I painted all the kids with different "zinka" warrior signs. They loved it! Only draw back I found was that the "paint" doesn't dry very fast so try and keep kiddies from mussing with their faces. ;)

Fun, fun, fun! My kids love having their faces painted. They no longer have to wait to go to a county fair or a festival (where it costs a lot of $$) we can now do it at home whenever we want! Great recipe.
