Puffy Paint

on January 6, 2013

003

My daughter came home with a homework assignment of decorating a paper snowman.  Her first reaction when I read her the instructions was, “Let’s make puffy paint for it!”  So we did and you can too since it’s so simple and you most likely have everything you need at home.  All you need are

Shaving cream

White School Glue

Disposable bowl

Plastic spoon

Paint brushes

Construction paper

In your disposable bowl combine one part glue to one part shaving cream and mix it well with your plastic spoon.  If you like you can add food coloring as well (as always ours needed to be pink!).  Now all the kids do is paint a picture with the mixture, the thicker the layer of paint the better as it will dry puffier.  Easy and fun (be warned however you are working with glue so protect your surface and wash the brushes really well immediately after the kids are done having their fun!).
