Puffy Paint Fun!

 Today's Craft:
Puffy Paint Fun!
Play with paint in some new and fun ways!

Craft Project Directions:
Puffy paint is a tremendous amount of fun and pretty easy to make and enjoy at home. To make puffy paint you will need: 1 tbsp self-rising flour, food coloring (whatever colors you want), 1 tbsp salt, and a tiny bit of water...like 1/4 tsp to start.

Now, mix your flour and salt together in a small bowl.  Add a little bit of water and stir until you get a smooth, thin paste (about the same consistency as yogurt).  Next, add your food coloring and mix it all together.  

Now, have fun painting on some heavier weight paper.  When you are finished painting, pop your painting in the microwave for 30 seconds and watch the paint puff, rise, and set.

Enjoy Crafting!
