My kids are really excited about the new Minion movie that is coming out this summer. To celebrate we made some Homemade Puff Paint recipe.
You won’t believe how easy this is to make. You have to do it! Perfect summer boredom buster!
(While you’re here, make sure you check out all of our activities for kids.)
This only takes three simple ingredients.
- shaving cream
- school glue
- food coloring
- kid scissors
- gallon storage bag for mixing
- Bounty paper towels for cleaning up
Take equal parts of glue and shaving cream and toss them in a zippy bag. I like to use the ones that glide closed so you know it is sealed!
Smooch it around.
Then add the food coloring.
Smooch it around some more until the color is evenly distributed in the bag.
Use the scissors to cut the corner of the bag for painting. The less you cut the more controlled your flow of puff paint will be.
Repeat this process for each of the colors you want to make.
We used some black construction paper and the colors were super vibrant.
This is a great dexterity building and fine motor exercise for little kids.
It is also a fun way name practice opportunity or a way to study and write spelling words. Make it fun!
If you leave it to dry, the paint will set. Pretty cool!
Make a spill? No worries! They clean up with water and a rag.
