This is a puff paint recipe that you can make at home & is non toxic for children


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tspns salt
  • 2 tspns baking soda


  1. Mix all ingredients together to make a clag like texture so the paint stays on the page
  2. Divide into 4 parts & add food colouring to each 4 then put into snap & lock bags. Cut small holes in the bottom corners & start painting onto cardboard.
  3. Put pictures into microwave for 20-40 seconds & watch the paint rise


Don't make the mixture too runny as you want tit to stay on the cardboard. Only cut a small hole for the paint to come out
