add sprinkles for extra depth and fun

My daughter’s favorite part of making our Christmas trees with puffy paint was adding sprinkles as ornaments to her tree! This is a great way to use up sprinkles.

Hint: We always buy sprinkles after holidays when they go on clearance for 75-90% off!

The sprinkles will set right into your puffy paint and stick when it sets to the touch. It gives projects a lot of dimension and originality!

toddlers and preschoolers will love the texture

My preschooler decided it would be great fun to finger (um, hand) paint. It really did have a cool, thick texture that was fun to play in. But again, if you use food coloring it may stain your child’s hand for a day or so.
