this morning after the breakfast dishes were put in the dishwasher and i had done a few chores, i decided to take the rest of the morning off from housework and do something fun with the girls while carson was napping. a month or so ago, i ran across a recipe for homemade puffy paint that i knew camryn would love and decided this morning would be the perfect time to give it a try.
the recipe was super easy to put together and the girls enjoyed helping me mix the ingredients together. they also thought microwaving their projects was quite entertaining as well.
this is the recipe that we used :
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons water
- food coloring
mix everything together and start painting! microwave completed painting for 20 seconds. we acheived the best results when the paint was applied heavily rather than spread thinly.
was so nice to have a good use for the neon food coloring that had been stashed in the pantry for a rainy day. who would've thought neon would be trendy once again?
