Puffy Paint Art Project

puffy paint

This is one of the easiest ways to introduce your child to painting—plus the paint will really stand up when it dries!

This is also a great way to teach your child to squeeze and it can help strengthen their hand muscles, too.


 

What You’ll Need:

  • puffy paint in assorted colors
  • paper

Project Prep

  1. There really isn’t much to this project. Just help your child squeeze the paint tube while holding it above the paper. Use different paints in contrasting colors for kids with low vision.
  2. The best part about this project is how neat it feels when it dries. The hardest part about this project is waiting for the paint to dry!
