My kids love to do arts & crafts. We always have little art stations set up throughout the house. Whether they’re drawing, painting, coloring, etc., they’re always imagining & creating! And I totally encourage it!

Letting them explore their creative sides and create a masterpiece from basic supplies is one of the joys of childhood. So to create a fun spin on painting, I created some homemade puffy paint for kids. Let me just say that this paint is very puffy and the kids really had a blast with this activity.

What’s even better is that you probably have all the supplies in your home already! Check out the easy recipe below:

3. Then, snip a tiny hole in the corners of the plastic bags and squeeze the mixture onto some white paper to create your design.

4. Once done designing, pop the drawing into the microwave for 20 second increments and watch the paint puff up! Be careful as the paint will be hot.

The kids really had a blast with this project. They love it whenever we make handmade art supplies and this one was no exception! The flower one was made by my 4 year old!
