What little kid doesn't love a temporary tattoo? Whether you want to create tattoos as party favors, like I did for my son's third birthday, or you just want a stash of them at home for fun, these DIY temporary tattoos for kids will provide tons of fun and entertainment for all!

Supplies:

** You can design them in Photoshop yourself or buy temporary tattoo downloads online. (There are lots available on etsy). I was lucky enough to have a friend, Rachel of Lupa and Pepi, who designed my carnival-themed tattoos for me. If you design them yourself, don't forget to flip the image so it looks backward—it prints backward but looks correct when applied.

Instructions:

Step 1: Once you have your designs ready, insert your temporary tattoo paper into your inkjet printer, following the instructions on the paper. I would recommend buying extra paper—for every sheet that did work, I had a sheet that didn't, so I used the entire two-pack of tattoo paper.

Step 2: After you print your tattoos on the paper, lay the sheet of printed tattoos on the self-adhesive sheet, and use a squeegee to press the two sheets together to ensure the adhesive is stuck to the design.

Step 3: Once you have your tattoos printed and stuck together, cut them to size.

Step 4: All you have left to do is apply them and enjoy! Be sure to follow the application instructions that come with your tattoo paper for best results.
