Puffy Paint Picture

Making your own puffy paint and painting a puffy paint picture is fun for kids of all ages and uses basic supplies only. Have a go and see what the kids can create! We think it is particularly appropriate for a minibeasts picture because of the lovely 3D textural quality the puffy paint provides.
