To make Kids Play and Create's recipe for banana bread facial mask, kids grind 2 tablespoons oats in a blender to produce a fine powder. They then mash 1 ripe banana in a mixing bowl and add the oat powder, 1/2 tablespoon orange juice, 1 tablespoon almond milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour. Kids mix these ingredients together until a paste-like consistency is achieved. If the mix is too dry, they can add more almond milk; if it is too wet, they should add more flour. The kids can then apply the mixture evenly to the face, avoiding the eyes, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.

For Kid's Cooking Activities' recipe for avocado egg mask, kids blend 1/2 an avocado, 1 teaspoon milk or buttermilk and 1 egg yolk. They apply the mixture to the face and let it sit for five to eight minutes.
