When I saw this post, (this is really a crafty mom – I just love her blog) I thought: I really have to try this. It looks easy. It looks inexpensive. I think my children will like it. and…. it was easy, inexpensive and they just loved it.
All you need is the following:
Mix 1 part flour and one part salt (I’ve mixed one tablespoon of flour and salt in each bowl). Add a few drops of food colouring. (I only had yellow and blue). Add some water to make a smooth paste. How thicker the paste, the more puff your picture will be.
Give the paint and cardboard to the eager child and watch. My son painted and painted and painted
And now for the magic. Microwave your picture for about 30 seconds on high.
And WOW…. it’s puffy paint. Isn’t this just great?
Let me know if you tried this!
