Fun craft all year! I used it for Memorial Day, parents will love how easily the tattoos wash off!


  • water-based face paints
  • small paintbrushes


  • Maybe you would like to paint on a flower tattoo or an American flag. It just depends on the holiday and what the kids want!

    I haven't used the temporary paper. But I have used medical tape to tape a stencil in place where I want it on my skin.


    Then used henna to tattoo the design. They last for 2-3 weeks and you can mix food coloring to give it some punch. Hope this helps.

    somebody told me to make a homemade henna tattoo you get henna powder and mix it with lemon juice then apply it in the design you want .... don't get it wet for 24 hours but occasionly dab it with a dampended cotton ball ( mix sugar and water togther to moisten the cotton ball) hope that helps you!
