Art Group – Wednesday, November 9


We got PUFFY with our Toddlers, Twos and Threes Art Group on Wednesday. Working with shades of orange homemade puffy paint, the kids decorated and texturized pumpkins both big and little. The coloring in each puffy paint was a slightly different orange, giving the pumpkins a really Fall feeling.


Unlike a lot of store-bought puffy paint, homemade puffy paint is light and easy to work with. The kids had so much fun smearing big globs of paint on the pumpkins. Most of them used the paintbrushes, but don’t be afraid to let your little one fingerpaint with the stuff. The hues come from food coloring and are easily washed off.


Want to make your own homemade puffy paint? It’s easy!

Assemble:
– Shaving cream
– White glue
– Food coloring

Mix 1 cup shaving cream with 1 cup white glue. Add food coloring until the desired shade is reached. Then have fun!

The puffy paint easily dries on most surfaces, so experiment with different “canvases” in which to use it. Have your kids decorate cloth or cardboard pieces or try puffy paint printing with stamps!


Toddlers, Twos and Threes Art Group meets every Wednesday at 10 am and is open to all members and visitors (with paid admission to PTLL’s playspace). The group is run by Megan Spak and Elisabeth Moyer.
