Experimenting with Puffy Paint

Since painting is one of my children’s favorite activities, we do it often.  Very often.  So occasionally I feel the need to mix it up a little.  I remembered that London’s preschool class painted with ‘puffy paint’ throughout the year, and I thought we would give it a try.  But of course, instead of looking up  instructions on how to make puffy paint, I thought we could play around and make our own.  Here goes……

Here are the materials we used:

My children and I were very unscientific when it came to determining the amount of things to use.  ”That looks about right.”

“How about a little more glue.”

Time to mix in the paint.

Now to paint!


We ended up adding more shaving cream to the mix.


Puffy paint success!

Beautiful!
