How to Make Puffy Paint

In a bowl, combine the white school glue and shaving cream  I used a craft stick to mix it. Puffy paint resembles cloud 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. Once dry it should feel dry to the touch.

Time to Paint the Cloud

Take a paint brush and paint the entire paper plate using the puffy paint. The more paint the better so let your little one use as much as they want! Make sure to cover your table before to make clean up easier.
