Puffy Paint Cupcake Craft

Grab your supplies.

Take a colourful sheet of paper (or just regular construction paper) and fold it like an accordion. Cut it into the shape of a cupcake liner. Glue it on the page.

Before starting the craft I cut out the shape of the cupcake top. Then I had my kids glue that down on top of their cupcake liners.

How to Make Puffy Paint

In a muffin tin or bowls, combine 1/4 white school glue, 1/4 shaving cream and a few drops of food colouring (various colours). I used craft sticks to mix it. Puffy paint resembles cloud or in this case icing but it doesn’t last for ever. Use the paint within 30 minutes. Once dry the paint will remain full for a few hours and then loose it thickness over time. It should feel dry to the touch.

Time to Decorate your Cupcake

Use your puffy paint to cover the cupcake top. Decorate with sequins and a Pom Pom!

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
