We made homemade puffy paint for the first time and now we can’t get enough of it. It is so fun to Paint with because not only does it dry 3D, but you can mix colors into it, and sprinkle it with glitter or other crafty supplies and they will adhere to the paint. We used it to make some 3D puffy Easter Eggs, and with our free Egg Template and Puffy Paint Craft Recipe you can make one too.
My son (age 2) really loved using his hands for this activity. He turned his artwork into a sensory experience and I have to tell you, we ended up with glitter all over the place. It didn’t have to be that way, but when Little Tiger was trying to keep her artwork safe from her little brother she grabbed her egg and swung it around leaving herself and him in a cloud of freshly sprinkled glitter. It looked like Tinker Bell had just visited :). Thank goodness everything is washable… and most of us in the house don’t mind having glitter on us.
