These puffy paint pumpkins are so much fun and are such a wonderful – sensory – puffy – Autumn / Fall art and craft project for Children!
Even Moms and Dads will like this paint texture!!!
So let’s get started!
Pumpkin Puffy Paint Recipe and Instructions:
Ingredients: Shaving Foam – Clear School Glue – Orange Food Coloring – pumpkin spice (optional)
- Into a bowl add equal amounts of shaving foam and glue (depending on how much puffy paint you want to make)
- Mix well
- Add more shaving foam until it turns into stiff peaks – this usually means about a 2:1 ratio of foam to glue
- Don’t worry – you can’t get this wrong!!
- Add food coloring and pumpkin spice (optional) and mix well – you need a tiny tiny amount of coloring!
- Simple as that!
And then when you are ready… start painting!
I drew outlines onto our paper for the girls to fill in. Once they were completely covered, they added real pumpkin seeds to the middle! The pumpkin seeds stick because of the glue in the mixture!
They turned out really well!!
Don’t forget pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes!
Mommy made some too!!
I just could not resist the puffy texture of the paint!
I gave mine a stem and some leaves.
