Easy puffy finger paint


Squirt some shaving cream into your bowl and then skirt the glue on top of it. For a bowl full of shaving cream, you will squirt approximately 1 tablespoon worth of glue in. It doesn’t have to be exact at all! That is the beauty of this craft! Then, you will add the food coloring. Put how ever much food coloring you need to create the color you want. Remember that food coloring can leave a temporary stain on your skin and a not so temporary stain on clothing! Mix up the ingredients together and you have puffy finger paint!
