Make your own puffy paint with the kids, they'll love to watch their paintings magically puff up!
Approximate Time: 15-20 minutes
Then add your food coloring.
You can use paint brushes or cotton swabs to paint onto the cardboard. Make sure you brush the paint on thick so that it will puff up when you're done.
Once you are finished painting place the cardboard picture in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.
This is very interesting. I think I might try making this for my daughter sometime -- thanks for sharing!
Oh this looks like fun! Going to keep this one! Thanks for sharing!
Cool! If you only have all-purpose flour, could you add baking soda? If so, how much? Thanks. :)
Cool, quite interesting! Gonna give this a try for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday party. :)
This sounds like fun! Will have to try it with my grandkids, thanks!
Thanks, great activity for a kid's playdate.
Have not tried making it with all-purpose flour and baking soda. But I am sure it would work because that's what is in the self-rising flour. Might have to experiment with the measurements though.
