3-Ingredient, homemade Puffy Paint an easy art technique for kids using microwave and a few basic kitchen ingredients.
If you know me, you know we LOVE homemade paint recipes and easy science activities. This homemade puffy paint fits the bill perfectly! This paint is super-easy and inexpensive to make. It’s fun to create with, but the best part is watching your artwork puff right up when you place it in the microwave!
