Squeeze this Puffy Paint

Puffy Painting

For this activity, you will need to use flour, salt, and water to add to the puffy paint.

In a mixing bowl mix an equal amount of flour, salt, and water.

Add the paint and mix well.

Fill the squeeze bottle with the paint mixture and let the child squeeze the puffy paint onto cardboard to create a picture.

When dry, the paint becomes hard and shiny.

To work on visual motor skills you can have the child imitate or copy different strokes, shapes or letters.

Snack Time

This activity requires adult supervision and assistance. You can use any fruit the child likes, but for this example, we are going to use a banana.

Pour 4 ounces of milk into the mixing bowl and add one envelope of pudding (any flavor). Depending on the child’s age and abilities, this step may require an adult maximal assistance.

Using the spoon, have the child stir the milk and pudding mix vigorously until it thickens. Allow the child to peel the banana and if can do so independently. Assist the child in slicing the banana.

In a bowl, show the child how to layer the ingredients, placing the pudding first, then the banana slices, and then the wafers. Have the child follow this step as many times as you wish. For the last layer of wafers, have the child crumble the wafers on the top.
