You need glue, green paint and shaving cream. We also had a paper plate to mix everything on and a shamrock shape. I used a cereal box to cut out the shamrock so that it would be a little sturdier.
Mix the shaving cream, glue and paint. I have also used food coloring to color the puffy paint, but it stains the skin and takes a while to come off, so I prefer to use paint.
Mix it all together.
Let the fun begin
Yay! Hunter loved it!!
Hailey worked very carefully on her shamrock.
Hunter painted his tummy while I was taking a picture of Hailey’s work.
Hailey’s completed shamrock. When it dries the paint stays puffy and it so neat!
Hunter’s completed shamrock… He played with his paint so much that it lost its puffiness, which is fine because he had fun. But if you want it to stay puffy don’t play with it too much.
