Art Toolkit – Puffy Snowflake Paintings

What You Need:

  • 1/2 Cup Flour (Self-rising works best)

  • 1/2 Cup Salt

  • Food Coloring (Optional)

  • Water

  • Squeeze Bottle (dishwashing soap bottle, ketchup bottle, etc.)

  • Card-stock/Heavy Construction Paper


  • In a bowl, mix flour and salt. Add a few drops of food coloring if you want colored snowflakes. Add enough water to make the mixture the consistency of pancake batter. Pour into empty squeeze bottle.

  • Make snowflake designs and wintry scenes on the construction paper.

  • Place the painting in the microwave for 30 seconds on high (microwave times will vary!). The paint will be dry and super puffy!

These Puffy Snowflake Paintings are a fun, simple and quick project to create with only 30 seconds drying time! This activity will promote fine motor and dexterity skills.
