Homemade Art Materials for Kids Art - More than 40 Recipes and Tutorials

If you want to make art with the kids, how about whipping up some homemade art materials first?

    Just a quick fyi–the link to the DIY Puffy Paint is not taking me to the recipe, just an image. Thanks for this amazing list! I love following your ideas.
