Many moons ago, when my older kids were young I was a professional Face Painter. I say professional, I mean, I used to get paid to go to fetes and parties and face paint loads of kids with whatever they wanted. I had a huge kit of face paints and printed cards for the kids to choose what they wanted. I remember one party when all the little 4 year old’s decided they wanted to be tigers, except for one little boy, he wanted to be a dinosaur!
This week we tried out a new Weekend Box special complete with Snazaroo Face Paints!
My Little Man is a big fan of The Weekend Box, he received his first back in 2014 when he couldn’t wait to get started so he was photographed in his pyjamas. We also reviewed a Chinese New Year Box where we made fortune cookies long before the bakers on the Great British Bake Off. We even gave the Mini Weekend Box a whirl last year.
The box came with two mini sets of face paints which Snazaroo are introducing.
First, let me give you some information on the mini sets.
Mini Theme Pack Information
Snazaroo, the nation’s leading face paint brand, launches it’s first ever Mini Theme Pack range, combining favourite face paint colours into handy palettes to help turn little monsters into little fairies in no time at all.
Priced at just £2.99, the bite size packs come with everything parents need to recreate looks at home: three colours, a brush, a sponge and an easy to follow 3-step guide. At a compact 10cm by 11cm, they’re perfect for every occasion, helping to transform playtime into a magical world for children no matter where they are.
With five vibrant themes – Summer, Carnival, Halloween, Christmas and Easter – kids are covered all year round. The colourful summer packs include a fun Festive Mask (made up of bright pink, white and royal blue) and a Jester (featuring grass green, white and purple).
A touch of water is required to use the paints. All Snazaroo products are hassle-free to wash off and are suitable for sensitive skin types, while the face paints are fragrance-free and specially-formulated to be gentle on the skin.
I think gentle on the skin and easy t wash off are essential. Don't you wish we had these as kids, or did you? I love face painting it's so creative and I think helps shy kids a bit too.
Wow what a great result, looks good quality #TriedTested
I love the sound of the mini kits and the guides. I've tried face painting with my girls a couple of times but I'm not very good at it so having a guide would help. I also like the idea of the stamps too – they sound so simple. Always good to know when they wash off easily as well! 🙂 #TriedTested
great that they are odourless
