I love being a part of the DecoArt core blogger team. I get to try new art products, make fun craft DIYs, and share them all with you.
I was recently inspired by one of the other core blogger’s DIY post featuring DecoArt People Paint. Yes, you read right – People Paint. Kids love getting their face painted, and this body paint comes in an easy-to-use paint pen, but is completely washable.
Check out Ginger Snap Crafts, where she shows you how to paint an American Flag on your kid’s cheek in 3 easy steps.
Honestly, I tried to talk my nephew in letting me paint 4th of July designs on his face, but he would have nothing of it! Batman! That’s all he wanted – Batman.
What could I do, but be a good auntie and oblige. Out came the People Paints. He let me draw a Batman mask on his face, a Batman symbol on his chest, and an outline of blue gloves on his hands. Being that he is only 3 years old, I had to work really quickly, otherwise I probably would have taken more time to fill in the face, but his expression was priceless when I was finished. He put on his favorite red cape, and gave me his best superhero pose.
So instead of getting into the pool, he ran around being the superhero he loves to be.
And of course at bedtime, he had to put on his Batman pajamas.
The superhero fascination is new to me. Raising my tween girl, it was all about the princesses at his age. It’s so funny experiencing this age from a boys perspective.
People paint is now my new favorite summertime poolside toy!
Our tweens are in the 4th of July spirit with their hand decorated leggings from yesterday’s post.

He looks so happy! These could be awesome for Halloween, too.
Absolutely! I would rather use People Paint pens than regular face paint.
I love the photos of your super hero. My 2yr old thinks he is as well. Can’t wait! Thank you.
I need these!!! My son Ethan(3)loves using his body as canvas with markers, paints and food… yes mealtimes can be very interesting and messy!
Thanks for sharing..
My grandson would love these
I would make a breakfast tray.
Yes, Halloween would be spectacular with these little gems! It would have made my daughter’s dead cheerleader costume last year much easier as well. We went with tattoos but these People Paint Pens would be a dream to use! Thanks for the opportunity to win. 🙂
