Puffy paint

Puff paint microwave

This is really cool and super quick/easy.  Combine the following in a little bowl:

  • 1 tablespoon self-raising flour
  • a few little drops of food colouring
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Then add some water to make a nice smooth paste.

Paint away on a nice thick sheet of cardboard (if you don’t have enough paint brushes use cotton buds – they work really well).

Microwave the design on high for 10 – 30 seconds until the paint puffs and it’s all nice and dry.  We did ours for 30 seconds.
