Homemade Dimensional Paint

Grace, Jack and Eve made their own puffy paint today. They mixed together 1 tablespoon of self-rising flour, 1 tablespoon of salt, some food coloring and added just enough water to make a paste consistency. They each used Q-tips to paint on cardboard. When the paintings were finished we put them in the microwave for 10-30 seconds and watched the paint magically rise before our eyes! This activity so much fun and it is definitely something that we will be doing again. Next time I'll be sure to get a picture of Eve painting. I was holding her on my lap today while she painted so I couldn't take her picture but she loved this activity too!
