Henna for Kids

Henna for Kids - two children using henna stencils and organic henna paste

Henna tattoos are the perfect indoor activity for your children. They can take pride in creating their own temporary tattoos and wear them as a badge of honor for weeks to come. With Mihenna, you don’t have to worry about mishaps or smeared artwork thanks to our adhesive stencils. Learn more about this fun, safe experience for your kids.

Organic Henna Paste

When it comes to keeping your family safe, we have your back. We only use organic henna leaves combined with our unique recipe of all-natural ingredients to create a paste that is safe for your little ones’ skin. We've created a custom essential oil blend that makes the henna tattoo color rich and beautiful as well as long-lasting. With proper care, your henna tattoos will stay beautiful for two weeks. If your child has any sensitivity to essential oils, test the paste in small area first before doing a full tattoo. You can read more about henna safety here

You can find our henna paste for sale individually or as part of our all-inclusive henna tattoo kits.

Smudge-Free Henna Stencils

Little hands can still create perfect henna tattoos with our adhesive stencils. Let them pick out the design they want - while we have a lot to choose from, we think our mini tats work best for little hands - and stick the stencil to their freshly-washed arm or hand. Reduce the mess and get flawless results even if they have trouble holding still. As a tip, once the henna dries enough to appear crunchy, wrap the area in plastic wrap so your kid can run around without leaving a trail of crumbs.

Again, we have henna stencils available individually or as part of our kits where you can choose your own designs or go with the ones we’ve pre-selected.

Learn about Henna

Creating henna tattoos is a great way to bond together, work on motor skills, and to foster their creativity. You can even turn this activity time into a lesson about how other cultures use henna. As an Indian-owned business, we’ve grown up wearing henna during weddings and festivals. Each of the symbols incorporated into the henna design has meaning from expressing part of yourself to wishing for good things in the future. Brush up on the history of henna before starting this activity with your kids to keep the conversation eye-opening as they get hands-on.

Henna for Older Kids

Pre-teens and teenagers are head over heels for our Henna Freckle Kit. They'll feel like a real life Instagram filter with their very own henna freckles. 

Girls applying henna freckles to face

Our organic henna paste is safe for skin and much safer than risking sun damage to get a few freckles. This way, you can have exactly how many freckles you want and where you want them. A speckled face is an easy way to look summer fresh!

To use, your teen will need to wash and thoroughly dry their face - there should be no makeup, lotions, or oil left. With the henna cone, add a cluster of dots across the bridge of the nose and over the cheeks. Drying times will vary depending on skin type and how dark they want their freckles. We recommend trying one hour to start with. A paper towel will easily remove the henna, and then followup with the provided coconut oil. The henna freckles will darken for the next 24 hours and can last up to two weeks with proper care.
