Puffy Paint Recipe

Kids love working with puffy paint, this is so easy to make.

Save all of your squeeze bottles to store this fun paint. You can use honey, ketchup, and mustard squeeze bottles. I found some great frosting squeeze bottles at a cooking store which we use and love.


mixing bowl(s)



1 cup flour

1 cup salt

1 cup water

Wilton's Cake dyes in colors of your choice


Mix together flour, salt and water. Once it is well blended stir in the cake dye. If you are making several colors, separate your paint before dyeing it. Funnel or spoon into your squeeze bottles.

Let your kids decorate paper, cardstock, or wood projects with it. Once it dries it sparkles. Very fun!
