I’ve been wanting to make a polar bear printable for a while, and what better time to do it than the winter? =) I surprised Lorelai with this craft tonight and – BONUS! – she got to do it with puffy paint! We haven’t used this kind of paint in a while… the last being the Unicorn Craft and the Snowman Craft from last year. This paint is more on the gritty side than smooth puff – it’s not made with shaving cream. I like it! =)
Here’s the recipe for the Puffy Paint:
Equal parts flour, water, salt, and tempera paint. Mix together and paint… that’s it! Will dry slightly raised. I used 1/2 cup of each and put it into a tupperware bowl to reuse later.
Other ideas instead of paint: cotton balls unraveled a bit, dried white beans, etc.
I told Lorelai to go get her PJ’s on tonight and she came back wearing this- Daddy’s soccer jersey. I used to wear my dad’s t-shirts to bed, though I think I was a little older. =)
