E(2) and I made the paint one morning while O(5) was at school. We mixed together 1 cup of white flour, 1 cup of salt, and 1 cup of water. We stirred the ingredients and then divided the mixture and added paint.
After stirring the paint to mix it really well, I put it into squeeze bottles.
The girls had fun painting after O got home from school. O said she was doing an "Action Jackson" (Jackson Pollock) style painting.
Puffy painting eventually turned into finger (hand) painting!
I also learned a valuable lesson...always check the weather before leaving paintings outside on the porch to dry overnight. They got soak and several blew away :(
