 Have you heard of Snazaroo, well it is a branded face paint for children.  The product is made in the UK, they are skin friendly, fragrance, paraben free and premium cosmetic ingredients to be gentle on kids skin. The facepaint is recommended for 3 years and over.

 I got asked to test out the new range of Snazaroo facepaints set which will be arriving by in shops soon.

There is the general face paint set with three colours (black, white and yellow) with a brush and sponge.

The set on the right is three face paints (red, yellow and green) with three fun stamps (cupcake, smiley face and musical symbol). Perfect for playtime or to use when it is your little one’s birthday.

I found it really easy to apply the face paint as it is water based . Though I had to be careful not to day to day much water into my sponge/brush as it did make the paint it’s water. But this was my first ever attempt and I think that is more me learning the ropes.

I can confirm it is really easy to clean off in one wash, all you need is soap and water.

Both my boys have sensitive skin and found no problems when applying and after. There was no irritation or redness.

I like the idea of having a certificate that your child can colour in to help make them feel proud of their achievements.

There are a range of step to step instuctions on Snazaroo so you can inspiration or relax and not panic about what to do.

Below are my attempts at painting a wriggly three year old (a cheater) and the eldest asked for a camouflage/army style.

The boys really enjoyed the fun element of getting their faces painted and playing together in their characters. I found it really encouraged imagination and working together, which as a parent is always lovely to see.

There are five vibrant mini packs being released, which is the first time ever for the mini packs . The themes are summer, carnival, Halloween, Christmas and Easter, therefore covering all essential periods throughout the year. What is great about the facepaints is that there are few colours and in a handy pack so you can travel about with them. You can even put them in your bag if you’re going to a party or something. The price of the face paint packs are £2.99 but you can be sure to be able to get a lot of fun out of using them not to mention all them special dress up days at school!

I was given the face paints in order of a review but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Five activities that won’t break the bank 

Hey readers,

Today I want to talk about things to do when you’re skint because that’s my situation right now.  I thought this may be of use to parents who struggle to find cheap entertainment when you have lack of funds.

1. The first thing that I would suggest is the most obvious thing and that is just to take a ball, frisbee or anything that is suitable for the park It can be just the local Apr down the road  but it is still fun. Not to mention getting some fresh air and a break from the four walls of your home.

2. If you are bored, skint and at home then pick film. You can even find a ton of free films on YouTube. Such a easy activity  to kill a couple of hours especially when it is rainy or to stop the never ending.

3. If you are desperately needing to escape the Doom of mummy prison then I suggest get your wellies on and go out. Even if it is to just simply collect leaves, sticks and stones. All I can be fantastic material to paint with at home. It is free and a real winner in my home.

4. I love my library, it is such a fabulous service within the community. It is  free to loan books and children’s audio books. There is free activities such as rhythmtime and story time – in the latter they provide  free activities with all their materials such as paper and colouring in pens. It  is a great day out for everyone and you’re learning, what more could you want?!

5. A classic activity to do when you’re skint is to get the board games out or jigsaws. You will be amazed at how much it can kill an hour or two and it us great bonding time. plus, it helps teach children patience and to share!

Is there anything I have not mentioned that is a real winner in your home that doesn’t break the bank?
Hope you have found this helpful and whatever you do I hope you have lots of fun.
