- Fun New iPhone app is Ideal Rainy Day Activity for Kids

Looking for free rainy day activities for kids but not sure where to start?  Face painting favourite, Snazaroo, has launched a new free iPhone app allowing mums and dads to test drive their skills before even picking up a brush.

Designed to take the fear out of face painting, this neat iPhone application helps mums who are face painting novices create a fun face on any photo stored in their phone using customised colours, brush size and even opacity levels, with the simple pinch and zoom function ensuring impressive and intricate designs couldn't be easier.

And when it's time to make your masterpiece a reality, the Snazaroo iPhone App provides a series of step by step guides to help mums transform kids into a host of fun characters from princesses to pirates and spotty dogs to soldiers, perfect for keeping them entertained on rainy days! It can also advise which face painting kits are needed to create the designs and for added convenience, mums can connect to the Snazaroo Online Shop and purchase what's required there and then.

It's also the perfect activity for keeping older children entertained in the car, when they can have a go at painting fun faces onto photos of mum and the rest of the family.

But perhaps the most fun element is that the unique face painted pictures that have been created can then be shared with friends and relatives via email, picture messaging or Facebook.

To download the free Snazaroo iPhone app direct, visit the Apple App Store on your iPhone.  Find out more about the app and read customers' ratings here.

It's also possible to download the iPhone app by following the link on Snazaroo's Facebook page, where you can also enter the Snazaroo Fantastic Faces Contest. To be in with a chance of winning this fab competition, simply upload the photo of your face painting creation before 20 October using Snazaroo's Facebook app, invite your friends to vote for your design, and you could scoop a main prize of a Snazaroo Professional Face Painter's Kit, worth £75, or four runners-up prizes of a Rainbow Face Painting Kit to keep the kids entertained.
