Puff Paint Projects
We love us some crafting over here, but I have to say one of my all time favorites is the puff ‘paint’ pictures. It’s a great sensory activity because the mixture is sticky, smooth, and gritty all at the same time!! We made clouds this time around but it can be anything you or your kids could think of: snowmen for winter, add some sand and make it into a beach, add some food colour and glitter make it a rainbow, the possibilities are endless! I made us three different colours for our craft today: blue, green, and white. I also added in co-ordinating glitter in different grains which the kids found so great when they were running their hands through the mixes.
We did this while Nay was having his nap and when he woke I had left them to dry on the table. He was not too pleased that he had missed out but as this is one of our favorites, I’m sure it’ll make a reappearance sometime soon.

Make sure you give it at least 12 hours to dry before you give it back to the kids to play with.
