Puffy Paint Fun

Puffy Paint is one of my all time favorite sensory play recipes to make and use with the kids. It takes less than 5 minutes to throw together and is a fun texture to play with. Even after it dries this puffy paint is super fun to touch!

DIY Puffy Paint Ingredients

3+ cups of shaving cream (foam not gel)

1 cup flour

1 cup white glue, such as Elmer’s

Food coloring or paint

Ziploc-style sandwich bags

Sturdy paper or board (poster board, tag board, cardboard, watercolor paper, or paper plates)


Measure out your ingredients.

Add all the ingredients, except for any coloring, into a large mixing bowl. Mix your ingredients.

Combine the shaving cream, flour and glue together without over mixing. (You want to keep the air bubbles in the shaving cream.)

Divide your mixture and add color.

Pour the white puffy paint mixture between 3 to 4 small bowls and add a few squirts of food coloring or paint to each bowl, stirring in, but again being careful not to over mix.

Note :: If you want to keep all or some of the puffy paint white (for making clouds, snowmen, or for working on black poster board, for example, then you can skip this step.

Let the fun begin.
