Today I have shared an activity with Little Boo that is on our summer pin it list making puff paint. I have always been pretty sceptical of this thinking that it will never work. However, today when shopping I bought some empty sauce bottles that looked perfect for this activity they were not too big and very easy to squeeze. I am glad I brought them as this is so cool and it does work really well. All you need is
- cup Self raising flour
- cup Salt
- keep adding until right consistency water
- paint good squirt.
- strong cardboard
|Little Boo made the mixture herself|
After the three colours were made Little Boo started painting with cotton buds (thanks to making boys men for the inspiration). The paint needs to be quite thick on the card to work. We applied the paint with both cotton buds and then the bottles I had brought.
After painting microwave for 10 seconds. This was fun as Little Boo liked to press the numbers on the microwave.
Once completed the paint puffs up and is hard to touch. It is hot when first coming out the microwave though so be careful.
