Puffy Poster Paint Recipe
Salt - optional
This paint recipe is fantastic for kids of all ages as when it dries it creates a wonderful dimensional paint effect which is suitable for tactile play.
Start by mixing equal amounts of flour, salt and water together then add any colored poster paint.
We made a big batch then separated them into cups and made individual colors.
Use a spatula or thick paint brush to paint with it.
You can also pour your mixture into squeeze bottles or re-use old squeeze sauce bottles.
Use the paint as normal, but when it dries it will harden to a puffed up dimensional paint.
If you are not wanting to keep these paintings for more than a few days then you can leave out the salt.
