Take your adorable kitten trick-or-treating.
So your hard-headed toddler refuses to wear a cat mask, headband with ears or anything else on her head for her Halloween costume? Don’t pull out the super glue just yet -- face painting is an inexpensive way to make your tot look adorable without having to battle her over annoying accessories. Turn on her favorite television show as a distraction, and you will have a Halloween kitten before the first trick-or-treaters show up at your door.
1Drape a towel around your little wiggle worm’s shoulders to protect her clothes from the paint.
2Paint a kitten muzzle with white paint above your toddler’s mouth to look like a full mustache with ends that curl up. Soften the edges with a dry brush.
3Draw a pointed, triangle-shaped kitten ear above each eyebrow with white paint. Fill in the triangles with white paint.
4Use a clean brush to paint her cheeks light pink in a small circle to look like blush. Soften the edges of the paint with a dry brush.
5Dip another brush into the black paint. Paint two to four eyelashes coming out from the corner of each eye, toward the temple. Draw a line around the kitten ears with the black paint.
6Paint the tip of your toddler’s nose with the black paint in a circle shape. Draw a line with the paint from the tip of the nose to the top of the upper lip. Paint a line around the white muzzle with the black paint.
7Paint two to three whiskers on each side of the face, beginning in the white muzzle and extending out.
