Puffy painting

One warm autumn day we decided to get puffy!

Craft is so simple and fun with a toddler and exposing them to different colours & textures is important in their exploration.

I decided to try puffy painting instead of just normal painting this week!

Here is the recipe:
1/2 tablespoon flour
1/2 tablespoon salt
Food dye of your choice.
Water

Mix together-add enough water so it is runny.

Children (and adults) paint whatever they wish and then….

Microwave for about 20secs and tada! You have a puffy painting!

My daughter loved this activity.

So simple…the microwave isn’t so Eco but the ingredients are!

Enjoy.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
