Create your own homemade puffy paint for sensory and creative play using this easy recipe. Simply paint then watch as it puffs up! Children can practice their art skills, enhance fine motor skills, create experience with cause and effect, and help develop hand-eye coordination.
You will need
- Shaving cream
- Elmer’s School Glue
- Food Colouring
- Place equal amount of shaving cream and Elmer’s school glue into a bowl and mix.
- If you’re making one colour, add some food colouring right into the bowl and stir.
- If you want several colours, scoop the shaving cream/glue mixture into plastic cups, then add different colours of food colouring and stir.
- When painting with puffy paint, have a piece of paper towel nearby as it can get a little messy with little ones!
