Last year I found a recipe for how to make puffy paint, we made it for a project in my preschool class so to involve the kids we put the ingredients into ziplock bags and let the kids squish it and shake it until it was all mixed together and then we cut the tip off of the bag (like how you would make a piping bag for cake decorating) and let the kids decorate their construction paper.
To do this with my son and our friend Megan we used store bought squeeze bottles (.97 each at walmart) we added the ingredients and shook the bottles.
there are tons of different ways to make this recipe but this is how we made ours
In each bottle:
- 1 cup flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 4 tsp salt
- food coloring (we used neon food coloring...it makes pretty colors)
The fun thing is you could use it to decorate any cut out.
look how cute* this crafty lady made cute labels for hers*
