How to Make Puffy Paint

My kids love to paint with puffy paint.  It adds dimension to their work and makes painting even more fun.  The best part: you can make it easily with ingredients you already have home!

To make your own puffy paint, simply mix one part of paint to one part of shaving cream.  Stir together gently and then brush onto paper.  If you spread the paint out super thin, the paint will flatten close to the paper; if, however, you brush the paint on thickly and allow it lie in small mounds on the paper, it will dry exactly as you paint it, texture and all.

Allow the paint to dry and display as usual.

What will you paint with your puffy paint?
