Recipe 1: Face Make-Up

1 tsp. fuller's earth (available from drugstore)
1 tsp. plain yogurt
1 tsp. water
A few drops of food coloring

Lightly apply to face, avoiding areas around mouth and eyes. (Use lipstick and/or eyeshadow for these areas.) Make-up will wash off with water.

Recipe 2: Body Paints

2 c non-irritating baby shampoo
Powdered tempera paints

Divide the shampoo into two or more portions (depending on how many different colors you want). Stir in tempera paint. Children can smoothe this on their bodies, lathering to make shapes and designs. It comes off easily by running through the sprinklers or showering.

Recipe 3: Face Paints

6 tsp. corn starch
3 tsp. water
3 tsp. cold cream
Food coloring
six-cup muffin tin

In each cup of the muffin tin, put 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon each of cold cream and water. Add a different color of food coloring to each cup. Mix well.
