DIY 3 Ingredient Puffy Paint Recipe from Blog Me Mom here. 4 ingredients if you add Kool-Aid. This mixture stays puffy for about 2 days and then goes flat – but it looks really fun to make for little kids.
Marbling with Shaving Cream. Tutorial at Ruffled. This is one of the strangest tutorials I have ever seen. If it works (and I haven’t tried it) it is genius even if the results aren’t spectacular. Why? Because I have done traditional marbling, thickening the “bath” with carageenan (so the paint has something to rest on), and then having to coat the cloth or paper with toxic alum. I mean I still have the rakes, huge box/bath, etc… that I should put on ebay! So when I see this tutorial that involves shaving cream and tempera paints or food coloring, I’m like sign me up! Would be great activity for kids too.
