Middle East Henna Activity

Need a cultural heritage activity that’s big on style and short on cash outlay? Here’s a slamming alternative to traditional face painting booths that’s not only more culturally diverse, but cheaper as well.

Using simple henna patterns and inexpensive eyeliner and eyebrow pencils, have your students draw temporary designs on themselves using the easily washed off makeup pencils instead of the semi permanent henna. This is a great center activity, open house activity during international day celebrations, or an alternative booth to face painting at the school carnival. You can find some fun henna patterns for no charge using this link.

This really is fun for all ages, and an unexpected twist. If you want your boss and room parents to think you’re a true rock star, try this out. Really.
