What you need for this ZOOMdo:
  • water-based face paints
  • clean paint brushes or cotton swabs
  • smock (you can use an old shirt)
 
 
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. Dog:
  2. Fill in the bottom half of your nose with black face paint.
  3. Paint a rounded triangle under your nose. The point should be directly under your nose and the base above your upper lip.
  4. Paint a small "U" directly under your lower lip and fill it in.
  5. Paint a big circle around one of your eyes that extends from above your eyebrow to below your eye. Fill it in. (Never put face paint too close to your eyes!)
  6. Add small black spots for "whisker holes" on your cheeks.
  7. Wear a brown shirt and you can really look like a dog.
  8. Clown:
  9. Paint your whole face white by outlining your face with the white face paint and then filling it in. Try to only use one coat of face paint. If you use too much it won't look as good.
  10. Use red face paint to paint around the outside of your real mouth to make a big smile. Don't get too close to your real mouth! Do this by outlining your mouth and then filling it in. The red can extend up to the lower part of your cheeks for a large smile.
  11. Paint a red circle on the tip of your nose.
  12. Paint triangles above and below your eyes. You can use any color you want.
  13. Put on a colorful wig, some big, baggy clothes, and you're a clown!
  14. Jack 'o Lantern:
  15. Paint your whole face orange by outlining your face with the orange face paint and then filling it in. Try to only use one coat of face paint. If you use too much it won't look as good.
  16. Paint two black triangles above your eyes.
  17. Paint a black triangle on your nose.
  18. For the mouth, draw the top of the smile above your upper lip, and then draw some teeth under your bottom lip. Don't get too close to your actual mouth.
  19. Draw some black stripes down your face.
  20. Put on an orange shirt and you're a pumpkin!
  21. Cleanup:
  22. To remove the face paint, just use soap and warm water.
