  • Food colouring of choice
What to Do
  1. Gather all your materials
  2. Set up your station in an area that can get messy
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and water into a baggy and squish it together.
  4. Add in food colouring (optional) to make the puffy paint a fun colour!
  5. Tie a rubber band around the top part of the baggy to prevent spillage, and snip off a small piece of the tip of the baggy like you’re icing a cake
