clean faces before applying?

Post by Junebug on Mon Feb 25, 2013 6:27 pm

Hi, I'm very new to all this. I was just wondering, can I use baby wipes to clean faces before I paint on them or is that too intrusive?

People do this in different ways. Some folks do the cleaning themselves, others hand the wipe to the parent. In general, it's a good idea to get the boogers and crusty food off the kid before using your expensive paint on their skin.

yah, I always pass it to the parents. If the parents are not in view, I take the child out of the chair and ask them to go find someone to clean their face. Unless they are a bit older 6 and up,they can do it themselves.

I've gone in to get that chocolate or dried cotton candy off (I hope it was chocolate now that I'm thinking about it) but since their letting you put stuff on their faces, shouldn't it be okay to take it off? Oh... I would go near a booger... I have five kids of my own and will only wipe three of their faces.

I clean them... it takes too long to try to find a parent, the kids don't clean off the stuff I want off, and I will remove anything that is in my way (ICK)... I will offer them the wipe with the crud and ask them if they'd like to keep it for later which usually gets a laugh.

I clean them, and if I note a parent in ear shot I yell face cleaning 2$ extra... I use sanatizer between each kiddo and rotate brushes, so I find it acceptable.
BTW I love to read Fess and Shannon, oh the things I have and hope to learn.

I will usually just wipe off their face... then if more are in line a mess.... I hand them out to the line... if they are small they will yell to a parent... Wink
