Who wouldn’t love a good experiment that combines mixing flour + watercolor paint, and zapping it into puffy magic in the microwave?
We mixed a batch of puffy paint from water, flour, baking soda, salt, and liquid watercolors. See Rashmie’s post for all the deets.
I poured the mixtures into these awesome Nancy Bottles from Discount School Supply.
And N made some cool designs on cut-up manilla file folders.
We zapped them in the microwave and they came out looking like this. I think my ratio must have been a little off because the texture isn’t as puffy and beautiful and those over at Mommy Labs, but my 3-year old was ENAMORED by the process and kept making them until we ran out of paint.
What a fun way to spend an afternoon. Thanks, Rashmie!
