puffy painting – tried it?

Zooming up to the top of the To Absosmurfly Do List is puffy painting. It sounds easy and such a blast
– One part self rising flour
– One part salt
– Enough water to make a paste
– Divide it into muffin tins or ice cube trays and add food colouring!
and then just give your smallie some brushes or Q-tips to start dabbing onto cardboard.

When the pictures are finished, microwave for about 10 seconds (the advice is to take it in 5 second intervals as really thick and wet paintings might need a little extra time.
sincere thanks to A Magical Childhood for the inspiration and gorgeous images
