Dressing up is an enjoyable part of Halloween. Many children wish to dress up as animals as a part of the Halloween celebration.

  1. 1

    Pin the child's hair away from the face to avoid smudging the face paint or getting your child's hair dirty.

  2. 2

    Draw a full circle around the child's mouth and nose in black face paint. This circle should start at the tip of the nose, down around the cheeks to the tip of the chin and back around to the nose. Make the line thick enough to act as a barrier between the other face paint colours.

  3. 3

    Colour the inside of the circle with pink face paint. This portion is the cow's nose.

  4. 4

    Paint irregular black spots around your child's face outside of the pink circle. Do not paint too many black spots and do not make them too large; you will need space for the white face paint.

  5. 5

    Paint around the black spots with white face paint. This will create the spotted cow look on your child's face.
