How to make Puffy Paint

Puffy paint is super easy to make and the texture is awesome!

I love that it’s just 3 simple ingredients:

  • Shaving Cream
  • White School Glue
  • Food Colouring

To make puffy paint you will need to:

Mix equal amounts of shaving cream and white glue until you have the texture you want.

Add a few drops of food colouring to the mixture. Keep in mind, that as the puffy paint dries, the colour will get darker, so don’t be too worried if it looks too light at this point. We used about 10-15 drops. Stir through (we used an ice block stick as we don’t want to get food colouring on our hands)

You will need to use a generous amount to paint with, but once it dries the kids will just want to touch it to feel the texture.
