- Food color or tempera paint
- Empty squeeze bottles
Mix equal parts of flour, salt, and water to make the puffy paint. (It should have the consistency of frosting). Stir in desired amount of food coloring (remember that paint will dry lighter than it is when wet.) Fill the squeeze bottles with the mixture (one color per squeeze bottle). Squeeze the paint onto the cardboard. Try zigzags, dots and other designs. Allow the cardboard to dry flat. When it is dry, the design will be raised and will sparkle! You can cut the cardboard out in the shape of eggs about 5" x 8" and have the children decorate the eggs. After the eggs dry, decorate a bulletin board with the eggs and cut construction paper grass to use on the bulletin board too! Btw, be sure to cut the cardboard into the desired egg shapes before decorating, as the paint is very thick and may crack when it dries.
