From Kate:

My daughter has long been a fan of face painting, and will generally make a beeline for the face painting table at any fair or carnival (cat whiskers are her go-to look, but rainbows, suns, and large hearts also are favorites). Although hardly a skilled artist myself, I would like to be able to have fun with face painting at home (especially on days when weather or mood keep us inside), but I cringe when I look at the ingredients in most store-bought face painting kits, so we have yet to try it out on our own.

I subsequently was particularly happy to discover the play face paint and makeup sets made by Luna Organics, a small New Hampshire-based outfit producing small kits of powder, lip balm, and color for children. All of the ingredients are gentle for delicate young skin, and all are easy to remove and fun to play with. My daughter and I experimented with the All-Natural Fancy Fairy Kit; the colors are bright and kid-friendly, and the glitter gives it all an extra shine. Also cool, these kits come in an adorable zippered pouch and with little jars that all interconnect in an ingenious way.

For those cold and rainy days when you just can't get yourself to the playground or the museum, check out the offerings of Luna Organics to put some sparkle in your playtime.
