Microwave Puffy Paint

This was one of the coolest surprises all year. I found this recipe on the Steve Spangler website.  This stuff is so easy and so much fun!!! 

Microwave Puffy Paint 

self-rising flour
food coloring


Combine 1 tbsp. self-rising flour + 1 tbsp. salt + food coloring + enough water for a thin paste

Make as many colors as you want!

Paint using Q-tips on stiff paper.  Microwave for 20 seconds.

Let the paper cool before handling.  

I COULD NOT stop touching it! It was so fun!  After its in the microwave its not liquid any more so you can feel it!

Here's some that we did: 

you can really see how puffy it is

Less than 2 weeks till back to school time!  Where has summer gone?
