Puffy Paint Ice Cream Collages.
This week we’ve been getting stuck into some ice-cream inspired arts and crafts activities in celebration of the many we’ve been eating due to the (mostly!) lovely sunny weather we’ve been enjoying.
First on our list was to create some puffy paint ice-cream pictures. Puffy paint is something I keep reading about but it’s not something we’d tackled before. But it sounded perfect for whipping up some ice-cream pictures with.

How to make Puffy Paint
We added a few drizzles of green paint to my 6 year olds sons “mint ice-cream” and a few drizzles of green paint and a dash cocoa powder to my 4 year olds “mint-chocolate ice-cream”. This smelt better than it looked but he was delighted with it. My daughter mixed up
her favourite pink paint into her mixture with a little help to create her favourite “Strawberry ice-cream”. I let my two sons loose on the shaving foam can and they thought it was hilarious when it came squirting out!
I cut out “ice-cream cones” out of scraps of cardboard. We then glued them onto paper and drew the outlines of our ice-creams with pencil ready to be filled with the puffy paint.
The kids had a great time using brushes to load up their ice-creams, they certainly didn’t hold back when it came to the toppings either. We used some glitter and some shiny stars in place of their favourite “ice-cream sprinkles”.
The session was a big success and we had a whole shop full of ice-creams made by the end of it.
