We love Homemade Puff Paint! This sensory activity was a blast. One part shaving cream, one part glue, add a little color and you're golden!

Your child can help mix the ingredients (and you can throw in a little math lesson while you are at it!).
We added a little blue and a little green coloring to give us two options.
We used brushes…
…and jumbo Popsicle sticks.
They scooped, dolloped, made zig zags, made letters, flung and got pretty messy.
We experimented with adding objects, like feathers, for example. Honestly, I don't think the experience needs anything added!
The hardest part was explaining to the boys that we had to let their masterpieces dry overnight.
I had lofty plans to create something ingenious and gorgeous with the result…
…but once I saw my boys had another plan, I let my ideas fly out the window. Watching them explore the textures of the puff paint (as it turns out some of the paint under the puffs hadn't dried yet) and rip pieces from the painting was wonderful.Â I can't wait to try it again with them.
Thanks for visiting!
