Children’s birthday parties are no longer those quite little get-together where they played around, danced, sang songs, gorged on yummy goodies and went home with a candy box in hand. The parties these days have multiple activities involved where kids have fun in a different way.

It could be jumping on castles, face painting, nail art, temporary tattoo making, kids’ spas, pamper sessions and a lot more. All of these are fun things to do these days and parents have accepted it that way. While almost all parties these days have some activity or the other from the ones mentioned above, face painting has always been in demand.

Kids love to get their face painted with designs of animals or probably their favourite comic characters. If you too are planning to arrange something of that sort for your little one and the friends while hiring a kids entertainment in Sydney, here is a quick guide to help you.

Ask if the kids like face painting

You could either ask the parents of the children or let your child do the survey. While everyone would agree, it is always good to be on the safe side. Once you know what they like, you can accordingly arrange for an expert on face painting in Sydney. They would ensure that you do not have to worry about how things are conducted. Once things are finalised, let the kids have fun.

Choose ONLY experienced face painting professionals

Kids are very particular about the type of picture they want on their face. It has to be the replica of what they see. Anything that is of low quality may not be acceptable to them. Therefore, hire only the experts and no one else. They should have relevant experience and expertise in face painting at parties. Check their past work or portfolio, and you will get an idea on whether you are making the right choice or not.

Check if their painting kit is hygienic

Some are known to use the same face painting kit wherever they go. If they are professionals and have a business to retain, they would ensure that their face painting kit is sanitised well. You wouldn’t want the parents to come to you and complain of skin rashes and allergies after the little one had got the face painted. Asking such questions isn’t embarrassing at all. You are doing it for the safety of a lot of kids.

The paint should be skin-friendly

When you are paying for their services, they should be using good quality paint that is skin-friendly. Anything other than that can be a distress call, therefore, check things yourself before the party starts and only then ensure that the kids come over to get their face painted. The skin of little children is sensitive, and anything wrong with the paint can aggravate things badly.

Look up the Internet to come across the right face painting professional where you can check their ratings and the reviews received. This can help you come across the right people.
