Face painting is not just for children – many adults enjoy it just as much. While children are more likely to choose a cartoon character or a bug or insect like a butterfly for their face painting, adults are probably more likely to go with the colors of their favorite sports team or perhaps an image of a clown. But it doesn’t matter. In either case, face painting is fun! So just do it!
