homemade puffy paint

this is such a fun activity for kids ~ 
and you probably already have the ingredients!

you need ~

1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
food coloring

first, mix salt, flour and water. the mixture should be the consistency of pudding.

next, add food coloring. you can make it as dark or light as you want. 
or try mixing two colors to make a new color.

use a funnel to transfer the paint to a squeeze bottle (like the ketchup & mustard ones at a restaurant)
or a ziplock bag- snip one tiny corner (like an icing bag).

have fun painting! 

once it dries you will have a puffy, glossy work of art 
with a little sparkle, thanks to the salt!
