How to Make Puffy Paint

Mix together the glue, shaving cream, and food coloring until the color is even. You can add pumpkin pie spice to make it scented if you like. We like to add glitter sometimes at this point.

Pumpkin Craft for Kids

Put 2/3rds of the puffy paint in a ziplock bag. Keep the rest in the bowl to make darker for contrast puffy paint later on =)

Close the ziplock bag and use scissors to snip off the corner for the puffy paint to come out. This is the same technique as I use to pipe frosting on cookies and cake.

You will want to use slighly heavier paper because of the weight of the puffy paint. On a piece of cardstock or construction paper pipe the outline of your pumpkin or fall shape.

Pumpkin Crafts for Preschoolers

Add more puffy paint and spread with a craft stick to fill in the pumpkin so it isn’t too thick.

Cut out a green stem out of construction paper and slip it in the top.

Put the slighly darker orange puffy paint from the bowl into a ziplock bag. Seal and once again cut the end. The smaller the hole the thinner the line and easier to control. A bigger hole goes on THICK and quickly.

Use the bag to pipe the outline to the pumpkin and some details like the ridges.
