Puffy Paint Project

With the Waldo Fire happening right now the kids haven't been able to play outside much.  They are bouncing off the walls.  The air quality isn't great.  It is a lot better today then it was on Wednesday but you still smell the smoke.  Our hearts go out to all those who have been evacuated and lost their homes.  I will do another post on the Waldo Fire later.
Today we didn't have friends over.  Instead we did a craft.  We made puffy paint and made some pictures. 
Check this craft out over at

This was so easy to make and cheap.
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup salt
4 TBSP water 
food coloring
Mix all ingredients until wet and no clumps.
Put in a bottle like the one by Tyler.
Use poster like paper to paint on.  Cook in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and watch the paint rise.

We discovered the more paint (thickness) the more it will rise.
Tyler really loved this activity.  He is still going.  I will post his art work when he is finished.
