A few weeks back I wrote this post, about making presents. Lots a people thought it was a great idea, and since then, one Mum and pretty girl have tried it out. They loved it and it worked a treat! So here is the recipe, which I sourced originally from here. I just played around with the quantities to make enough to put in the jars, to make it a thick enough to paint and not drip everywhere.
1 tablespoon of self raising flour
1 tablespoon of salt
4 teaspoons of water
I found it easier to mix the ingredients with a whisk, it was definitely less lumpy this way.
I then found the cute little jars I used from the Reject shop, packets of brushes from Safeway and used some ribbon to pretty them up a bit. To finish them off, a nice pretty bag, some instructions to go with the paint and a card. I wrote my own instructions which went a little like this:
Magic Puff Paint
Using some carboard, paint a masterpiece!
Don’t use the paint in big blobs thought!
Are you finished?
Place your masterpiece in the microwave for 10-10 seconds.
This will make the magic happen!
I play to make some more for Phoebe to play with over the holidays. If you make some, let me know how you go and if the kids enjoyed it!
