If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, you may have seen my WRAL: Go Ask Mom guest post about making your own 3D Puffy paint for arts and crafts projects yesterday. This homemade paint is super simple to make and you probably already have the supplies on hand to try it out!
In addition to how to make this fun sensory paint, I also wanted to share with you a few examples of easy paper craft projects we’ve done using this 3D paint!
Our first puffy paint project was done this past February. We made snowmen. For this craft, we painted directly on card stock. We did this as a two day project. Here are the directions: Day One post, Day Two post.
We also made pumpkins this Fall. Again I printed a pumpkin form on printer paper and glued it to thin card board. To find templates online, I typically Google something like “free pumpkin coloring sheet” and click on Images. The kids colored the leaves and stem with crayons and then painted the pumpkin with our puffy paint. Once dry, I cut the pumpkins out for them. Note: I used more shaving cream than glue in this particular mix and it didn’t dry as puffy as normal, so be sure to use roughly a 50-50 mix!
