Puffy Paint

Here is an easy way to make your own puffy paint. The kids will have so much fun making 3D pictures. Be prepared, we started out using paint brushes and ended up finger painting. The kids just cant resist this fluffy paint! If your kids are like ours, you might want to schedule time for a bath.

What you need:
  • shaving cream
  • school glue
  • liquid food coloring
This is not a recipe that you need to be exact. Squirt about a 1/2 a cup of shaving cream in each bowl for each color you want to make. Next squeeze about 2 T of glue into each bowl. Now add the food coloring to the bowls until you reach the color that you desire. Mix and paint. You can use paint brushes or your hands. Older kids might like to put the paint in zip lock bags, snip the corner and squeeze the paint out for more precise pictures.
Pin It!
