Say ‘I love you’ with this fun make-it-yourself paint. Children will love the puffy paint mixture, and a special adult will love receiving the final product, either as a card or stand-alone gift this holiday season!
To make our puffy paint, we combined the following:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tempera paint
Travis had so much fun mixing the gloppy paint together that it took a while before I could direct his attention to the rest of the craft!
I outlined several hearts on paper with pencil for him, and let him fill in the shapes with his puffy paint.
I also filled in one heart myself as an example, so he had a sense of what his final craft could look like, but don’t expect a toddler to get the heart exactly right!
