In this make-and-take activity, students mix two such ingredients, glue and tempera paint, to create puffy paint artwork. Students can explore shape and texture as they create.
Puffy paint is any paint that has three-dimensional texture and seems to 'puff up' off the paper. It can be made using a variety of ingredients that create different levels of 'puffiness'.
These activities are part of Science World’s Big Science For Little Hands program. They were developed and tested with preschool and kindergarten educators. Some of the activities are done in stations.
