Here’s how to face-paint an Easter chick for your child…
First, paint the eyes
With white paint and a brush, carefully paint a high semi-circular shape above each eye over the eyebrows and onto the forehead. Make sure your child keeps their eyes closed all the time.
Then paint the chick shape
With the yellow face paint, outline the white areas and then draw the outline of the
Add 3 tufts of feathers at the top of the chick’s head (in the centre of your child’s forehead) and 3 tufts at the sides (at the corner of your child’s eyes) for little wings.
Fill the outline in – a damp sponge will help here.
Next, add the outlines
With the orange paint and a brush, draw a beak on your child’s nose and a foot at each corner of your child’s mouth.
Outline the whole chick shape with black paint, using a zig-zag shape to create a fluffy effect.
Outline the feet, and then the eyes, adding three flicks as eyelashes.
Outline the beak, adding two small ‘c’ shapes as nostrils.
