Creating Microwave Puffy Paint

A few days ago I had a house full of sick children, so I wanted something fairly simple but fun for them to do. This microwave puffy paint was perfect! I found it on Pinterest (A great source of ideas and a huge waste of time all in one!). The original blog post is from Housing A Forest.

We made one batch of paint and split it into four bowls for four different colours

Essentially this is a runny dough that cooks and rises in the microwave. They were fun to make and the boys loved watching them puff up too.

We used cotton buds and syringes to apply the paint

It was trickier to apply than normal paint but even Secondus managed it.

Our results

Washing the dishes afterwards was just another sensory activity
