art group - homemade puffy paint


Although I haven't been so good at posting weekly updates about art group we have been meeting and creating.  This week's project was puffy painted pumpkins.  Say that five times fast.

 Some friends liked using brushes.

Others wanted some help.  I love this picture of grandmother helping this sweet little girl.  She is just over a year old.

Can you guess who's this is???  The purple queen herself.  I like how you can see the puffiness in this picture.

And others wanted to feel it with their hands.  Emily and I both agreed this was the way to go!

Here is the recipe for Puffy Paint:

  • 1 cup glue
  • 1 cup shaving cream (maybe a little more)
  • food coloring
Mix glue and shaving cream in a bowl.  Add food coloring.  Paint with a brush or scoop out with a spoon and finger paint.  This paint works best with cardboard or card stock.    


  1. That looks like so much fun! So sad we missed yesterday. We LOVE art group. We'll definitely give this one a try at home.

  2. We missed you too! I kept thinking your little lady would flip a gear over this stuff! Maybe try it outside if we have warm day left this year - it was a little messy!
