Puffed Up Painting

Thad and I had so much fun making this paint! It puffs up when you microwave it and he loved watching the process!
All you need to do is:

Mix 4 TB of Self Rising flour
4 TB of Salt
Add water slowly until it forms a drippy paste
Separate into bowls and add food coloring

Paint and then microwave drawings for 30 seconds or a little more

We used Q-tips for painting

Here are two paintings that puffed up a little bit!

YAY for another day of fun! And many thanks to Tricia for finding the idea for us!!

How FUN! Puff paint! Thanks for sharing your pictures and the recipe. We'll have to try this at Barchester.

By the way, I really love your sunshine painting. Inspiring!
