Painting is always an all time favourite for kids. Puffy Paint is just so much better though! I made 6 different colours and decided to store them in squeezie bottles so that they are easy to use when painting. For those of you in the Johannesburg area, I bought the bottles at Westpack Packaging at the Lifestyle Centre for R3.50 each.

Puffy Paint Recipe

To fill a 250ml bottle for each colour you will need:

  • 125ml flour
  • 125ml salt
  • 125ml water
  • Food colouring of your choice

Mix all ingredients together and fill up your squeezie bottle.

Once your kids are done painting, leave their artwork to dry overnight

Thanks Christi!!! Tried this today and....WHAT A HIT!!! The boys and their playdate-friends loved it. What I also like about it, is the fact that it's not messy at all;-))
