Getting creative!!

A messy play recipe

microwave puff-paint

Why not get your children to be creative with this recipe. It makes an interesting paint that 'puffs up' when it is cooked in the microwave.

You will need:

1 tablespoon self-raising flour
1 tablespoon salt
few drops food colouring

1.Mix the ingredients together using enough water to make a smooth paste.
2.Make 3 to 4 different colours - empty yoghurt pottles are handy containers.
3.Paint on to thick paper or cardboard, then microwave on high for about 10 seconds or until the paint is dry.

give it a go!!
