Puffy Paint Pumpkin

Puffy paint is fun to work with, and kids love watching it expand in the microwave. Here's a Halloween craft idea with some orange coloured puffy paint...

Puffy Paint Pumpkin

You will need:

Black card
Flour
Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
Salt
Orange food colouring

Instructions:

  • Mix together a cup of flour, 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda and a teaspoon of salt. 
  • Add the orange food colouring and mix in enough water to get a smooth paste.
  • Use a lolly stick or a spoon - or even your fingers - to spread the mixture onto your card in a pumpkin shape.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds to see the paint puff up!
