Sometimes you just have to change things up a little, add a new element to the same old fun. It doesn’t mean the old isn’t fun anymore, it just means your growing, experimenting and changing, learning. Sometimes you just need to shake things up a little. Puffy paint in squeeze bottles added a different level to painting.
My girls have always loved painting, I started them at about six months with paper taped to the floor, paint dropped onto it and let them go. They were hooked from the beginning. Might help that an art or learning activity is worth the mess in my mind.
Homemade Puffy Paint
So here is all you need to make Puff Paint:
Equal parts flour, salt and water. Add some food color. Simple right? *may need some more water*
We had fun. All of us. Once we get to Saskatoon we’ll need to get some more bottles for more colours.
After a little while Austin wanted to have some different colors and explored pouring one container into the other, a somewhat slow, mess adventure.
“Momma I can I mix these?” Yes you can, go for it!
We chose to just paint on out plastic Little Tikes picnic table. We all knew that it would be washing away. We were able to wipe it away, add more pictures for continued fun.
We’ll definitely have to try this again! In the mean time you can check out some of these other paint ideas.
