Another Awesome Art Project: Homemade Puffy Paint!

Found another awesome project to do with my kids!

What you’ll need:

1 cup water
1 cup salt
1 cup flour
food coloring or paint
squeeze bottles

Combine salt and flour in a large bowl, add water and stir until smooth.  Separate into smaller bowls to stir in paint or food coloring to desired intensity.  I added about 3 drops of food coloring to each third of the mixture, to make pink, yellow, and blue.  Using a funnel, pour the paint into squeeze bottles.

This one, he told me, is “two animals fighting… there’s a good guy and a bad guy..  and Darth Vader has a light saber.”  Funny, cuz to me it looks like flowers and cotton candy and other super sweet things!

The salt gives it a little shimmer.
This is cheap, and really fun.  The boys enjoyed making the paint as much as they loved using it!
