Easy Face Painting Ideas for Kids Parties

Face painting is a brilliant way to add a personalised touch to a fancy dress costume and one of our favourite party activities for kids. And while it might seem like a complicated business, you don’t have to be a face painting expert to create some really simple and impressive designs.

All you need is a couple of basic face painting materials and the help of one of our easy-to-follow video tutorials. We’ve got loads of easy face painting tutorials on our YouTube channel (you can check them out here) and we’ve showcased the best of a great bunch below.

All the designs in this post were created using our great range of face painting supplies so if you’d like to recreate any of our designs using the exact face paints we used, you’ll find them all in our shop.

Anna from Frozen

Anna is one of our favourite Disney princesses and she’s inspired one of our favourite kids’ face paint designs!

This design goes perfectly with our official Anna costume as it uses all the same colours as the outfit. And with so many little girls dressing up in Frozen fancy dress, it’s a great way to make your costume stand out! Just watch the video tutorial below to find out how to recreate this lovely kids’ face paint idea.

Easy minion face paint design

Minions, assemble! It’s easy to paint yourself yellow but watch our easy video tutorial to find out how to paint on some impressive minion goggles and really take your minion costume to the next level! 

Half-face Spider-Man design

Save time with our simple half-face Spider-Man face paint design – and if you have enough time, simply extend it to cover the whole face! You only need three colours of paint for this one (perfect for parties on a budget) and once you’ve got the knack of drawing a cobweb, it’s a really easy one to make look good!

Pretty Tinkerbell face paint

This design is so pretty and such an easy face painting idea! Face paint designs for kids need to be quick (particularly if the kids in question can’t sit still!) so this one fits the bill perfectly.

Follow the short video tutorial below to find out how to do it with just two colours and add glitter if you’d like to make it extra snazzy! Then team it up with an official Tinkerbell outfit to complete the fairy look.

Easy Zebra face paint idea

Finally, we have a really cool zebra design that’s brilliant for animal themed parties. All you need is our black and white Snazaroo face paints and you’re all set for the easiest and most impressive kids’ face paint design of the lot!
