Paint that's safe and non-toxic to a horse??

Our barn is holding summer camps this year and one of the activities we were thinking about was having kids paint one of the horses.

Are there any paints that are completely safe to do this with??

Any ideas or info welcomed !

Thanks everyone

I can tell you what NOT to use :) I showed a black mare as a kid and at our 4-H fair, I decided I wanted her to be a Zebra for costume I put stripes on her with white liquid shoe polish. 4 days and 4 baths later I had the Grand Champion halter zebra LOL

For our summer camps last year I used non-toxic washable poster paint from a craft store. It worked really well and the horses cleaned up nicely afterward.
