I have never used store bought puff paint as I thought the experience of making our own would be part of the fun of the craft. It was! A great sensory, color mixing and science activity, homemade puff paint was a lot of fun and easily created from ingredients in the kitchen cupboard.

I am not certain what was more of a hit, using the bags or seeing the paint rise after being in the microwave but apart from being messy, this was a super fun craft.
Note: I covered our craft surface with a plastic cover as it made clean up a lot easier and I was not afraid of little hands opening the bags to take a closer look at the paint.
