Great Craft Idea for Kids

I saw a link for this craft idea on Sandra's blog a long time ago. I tried it today with the girls and it was a huge hit!
Puffy Paint

Mix 2 T. flour
2 T. salt
food coloring
enough water to make a think paste.

The kids can use the paste to paint pictures on thick pieces of cardboard. Then you microwave it for 20 seconds or until dry.

The girls absolutely loved it and had a great time with it!

Here they are all painting:

Here is what it looks like before microwaving:

This is after- all puffed up:

Here are the girls with their favorite designs:

Arianna did a picture for Uncle Duane. He takes her fishing so she did a fish picture:

Marissa did this one:

Halle did a fireball:
