Promoting Kid’s Entrepreneurship with Face Paint

by This is Carrie on November 20, 2012

My kids are always looking for ways to earn money. It might have something to do with me always responding “save your money!” to their every candy and toy request. Starting young, I have payed them for odd jobs around the house, but the girls have quickly realized being your own boss beats being an “employee” or a “contract worker”. Being your own boss also means endless possibilities for cash earnings as evidenced by my ten-year old’s successful Cake Pop/Bon Bon business.  What does this have to do with face paint?  Well, with the help of Klutz Face Painting book,  it looks like face painting might turn into a new, child-owned business in this house.

With easy-to-follow instructions and all the supplies included, the Klutz Face Painting book quickly taught my 10 year old daughter and her best friend some pretty impressive face and body painting skills that got the attention of all the neighborhood kids.  After a little practice on each other, the kids were lined up and willing to pay a quarter a design.

With just a little more practice, I think they could hit the neighborhood birthday party circuit and make a little college money.

You can find the Klutz Face Painting book as well as a bunch of other fun and creative titles that will no doubt promote entrepreneurship in your kids at (and they are now packaged in easier to wrap shapes just in time for holiday gift giving).

If you love Klutz as much as we do, enter the Wrap It Up With Klutz! Sweepstakes every week until November 26th for a chance to win some prizes too! Ten winners each week win 10 Klutz Titles!

Disclosure: I’m thrilled to be a Klutz Books Ambassador for this holiday season. I’ve been a Klutz fan since I was a kid when I got my first Klutz book about games you can play with a Koosh Ball. Yes, I’m that old.  I’ve bought numerous Klutz books for my kids and others over the years. They are definitely my “go to” birthday & holiday gift. While I received compensation as well as a gift or sample of a Klutz product for consideration in preparing to write this content, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  I assure you my undying love and adoration for the Klutz brand was not bought, it was cultivated over 20 years of great and real experiences with the company.

I think I’ll get my daughter the crayon body art one for Christmas. We love Klutz stuff anyway. :)

I had this book when I was Princess’ age and just pulled it out of a box and put it on the shelf for my daughter…glad to hear it’s still in print…not sure I want anyone using 20 year old paints. It IS so kid-friendly–both the book and the hobby of emblazoning your buddies. And I ended up face painting at the local amusement park during high school– Princess could totally make a mini-career out of it. I was face painting at the height of the pikachu craze…I wish her a most-requested image that doesn’t use yellow…it always takes a million coats!

This is the exact book I began my face painting fun with, it’s truly a great beginning book. I have 2 granddaughters (3&4 yrs old) that come with a great “canvas” each. The first thing I hear when we see each other is, “Grandma, will you paint my face?!” I love the idea of starting the kids off in their own business. I would recommend for some great tutorials and ideas. Also, just google “face painting” for great ideas. I have done countless princesses, butterflies, unicorns, a pirate, a bird, even a crocodile. I have a collection for ideas on Pinterest (solidgrounds) if it would help. I can’t believe how much fun we all have, it has turned out to be a family gift to us all! Happy painting!
