And there are those that’s puffy, but you will need a microwave. I know most households have one so the puffy paint recipe is great for you. But not everyone has a microwave. And if I can find a recipe that doesn’t need one, why should I bother?

I recently found this Puff Paint recipe from and it’s amazebaaaalls. The kids love the result and I’m pretty impressed, too. So we thought we’d share it to you!

You will need:

  1. Shaving cream foam (not gel) – 3 cups, but prepare one or two cups more just in case you’ll need it.
  2. Flour – 1 cup
  3. Elmer’s Glue (or any white glue you have available) – 1 cup
  4. Food colouring
  5. Ziploc bags – preferably sandwich size
  6. Cardboard or boards or paper plates
