Puffy Paint Craft For Kids- Part 2

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on how to make Puffy Paint. There are loads of different ways to make Puffy Paint.

The last one we did we used Paint and Shaving foam. It’s puffy but it’s not as puffy as this one I’m about to show you.

This is my favourite way to make Puffy paint.

All you need is:

1 Cup Of Self Raising Flour

3/4 Cup of Salt

3/4 Cup WaterFlour Puffy Paint Craft 2

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Then get a few spate containers and bowls and pour out the mixture evenly between them all. Mix a few drops of food colouring into each separate container.

I found these  disposable piping bags in Dealz for €1.49 but if you don’t have these you can also use just normal small sandwich bags, they work the same and are the right size for small little hands.

Spoon the mixture into the different bags and tie with string. Make a small snip at the bottom of the bag with a scissors.

I placed all of the bags and a few plain white sheets of paper on the kitchen table and waited to see how long it would take the kids to notice they were there.

oooh what’s this mummy, can I eat it?

In fairness it does look so like icing so I had to explain that it was puffy paint and that we couldn’t eat it or we’d get a pain in our tummies!

Then the fun began. You can make lots of different shapes and designs. I really enjoyed doing this too. I think it’s for all ages really.

After you are finished painting all you do is stick your paper in the microwave-one at a time! I tried a few different durations and with our microwave 20 seconds seemed to work perfectly. See the results below..

If you don’t have a microwave you can also use a hairdryer. It takes a little bit longer but it’s great fun seeing your painting coming to life right in front of your eyes!!
