Microwave Puffy paint

Microwave puffy paint is totally magical! They are so much fun to paint with and are easily made using just flour, salt and water. The 'magic' takes place when this recipe is placed into a microwave and puffs up in seconds to create beautiful 3D art work. What a fun painting technique for kids! 

Your kids will be entertained and learn something new.

How to Do:

  • Take half a cup of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, two teaspoons of salt, and some food colouring. You can make some paint by adding enough water to make a paste out of the ingredients. Add a cardboard or mat board as a base for the creations and get started.

  • Mix the ingredients into separate little bowls and add the colours. Once done, use some old squeeze bottles or plastic zip loc bags and let the kids go to town on the mats.

  • Microwave the creations for 30 – 40 seconds.
