How to Make Puffy Paint, Step-by-Step Directions:

1. Mix Up the Magic: Firstly, grab a mixing bowl and blend equal parts white glue and fluffy shaving cream. Use your spoon or spatula to swirl them together until you’ve concocted a fluffy cloud in a bowl!

2. Splash on Some Color: Afterwards, divide your cloud-like mixture into smaller bowls, one for each hue of puffy paint you want to whip up. Add a dash of food coloring to each bowl and stir until your colors are as vibrant as a rainbow after a storm!

3. Paint the Town (or Paper!): And next comes the best part—let the painting fun begin! Grab your paintbrushes! Whether it’s bold lines, squiggly shapes, or abstract blobs, let your imagination run wild! Another tip you may want to try is scooping the paint onto the paper with a spoon and the spread it out!

For this activity we made circus animal cookies with white and pink puffy paint, and we used pompoms for the sprinkles! You can also make ice cream cones, puffy paint hearts, or anything else your kids dream up!
