A mouse face is one of the easiest designs to paint on a child. Generally, a mouse face needs only a few colours so it's the perfect choice if the little one has a hard time sitting still. Don't worry about it looking perfect as long as the child ends up with a creative design on his face. Kids aren't too worried about the fine details so just have fun painting your child's mouse face.

  1. 1

    Apply grey paint to the child's face with a make-up sponge. Avoid getting the paint too close to her eyes. Spread the paint to her forehead, cheeks and chin and to the area above the upper lip.

  2. 2

    Use a round make-up brush to paint a round black or pink nose on the bottom of the child's nose. Use black paint to create a small strip down the bridge of the child's nose.

  3. 3

    Paint two pink circles on the child's cheeks.

  4. 4

    Use a liner brush (thin whiskers) or round brush (thicker whiskers) to create whiskers. Paint about three or four whiskers on each side of the face with black paint.

  5. 5

    Outline large ears about an inch above her eyebrows with black paint. Fill in the ears with white paint.

  6. 6

    Use the liner brush to paint a few wispy black vertical lines on her forehead to give the impression of fur.
