Homemade Puffy Paint Creations

 Puffy paint is loads of fun! 
We made this craft two years ago on Arts & Crafts Day!
 I used old boxes torn apart for them to paint on.
 I mixed each color in a separate bowl with Q-tips and they began to paint.
At first it looks like a big mess. But after placing them in the microwave, they turned out great!

I found the recipe at Skip to My Lou

Recipe 
1 tablespoon self rising flour
A few drops of food coloring
1 tablespoon salt
Add water to make a smooth paste.

Use thick cardboard to paint on with paint brushes or Q-tips
When completed with the art, microwave on High for 10-30 seconds.

Sorry my pictures aren't clear. I took these with my cell phone.
