I don’t know what it is with PUFFY and KIDS but every child I know has loved puffy paint art activities.
We’ve tried our share of different DIY puffy paint recipes as well as commercial puffy paints and today I thought I’d share five of our favorites.
Puffy Paint for Kids 5 Ways
Give one of these puffy paint ideas a try with your kids for a fun sensory experience while creating 3 dimensional artwork.
This puffy paint is amazing! It’s the puffiest of puffy paint, puffing up even more after it’s applied.
Watch it puff up before your eyes as it cooks for 30 seconds in the microwave! Add essential oils for an added sensory element.
It’s raised and little kids love to mix it, squeeze it out, and create art with it but I wouldn’t call it puffy per se. It dries 3D but is hard and crystalline.
So puffy! So foamy! Foam paint is not cheap, but it is definitely worth the price at least once if it’s in your budget.
What kid doesn’t love shaving cream! You can combine the two for a DIY foam paint experience, either before applying (as with this bathtub paint recipe) or on the art surface as with the shaving cream painting on the mirror pictured above.
Plus, of course, there’s the puffy paint for fabric that we used on our jeans and Keds as teens. Did you know you can use it on other surfaces? Check out these bracelets and headbands made with puffy paint over on Doodlecraft!
How about you? Have you tried puffy paint art with your kids? Which one do you think they would enjoy the most?
