How to make Puffy Paint

Here is an activity for the students to try and make over the holidays. They will love making it and playing with this pain is fun.

Recipe for Puffy Paint
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of salt
3/4 cup of water
Food colouring

Continually mix the ingredients with a spoon until all ingredients have combined well into a paste.

Use a thick cardboard from an empty box and also cut the cardboard in smaller to fit into the microwave. When the painting is finished place a microwavable bowl in the centre of the microwave and put 1 painting at a time on top of the bowl. Different microwave require different times but it takes around 25sec on high to puff the paint. Don't over cook. It should the warm not hot!


Have fun and take a photo of your Art Piece to show the class!
