DIY Microwave puffy paint tutorial - this is SO cool! It uses only 3 ingredients that you probably already have, and it puffs up in just seconds! Great craft idea for kids!
bathtub puffy paint: apparently leads to BOTH a clean kid and a clean tub. I'd happily settle for one or the other
Microwave puff paint - 1 cup flour ,3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt & enough water to make it the consistency of pancake batter.Divide mix into four parts & put into snack size Ziploc bagS w/ some food coloring.Squish it all around to mix up the colors.Cut off a small tip of the bag , like you would if you were decorating with icing . Paint on paper & pop picture in microwave 30-45 seconds .Watch the paint puff up .
Painting with flour. Microwave 30 sec. to make fluffy! Equal parts salt and self-rising flour with enough water to make a very thick paste. // This worked great and was really neat! Thicker paste and painting definitely worked better. I'd also make a big batch, then separate it and dye it.
