This upcoming weekend is very special. It is Father’s Day! It is a time to celebrate the wonderful dads in our lives. My son loves doing special projects with his dad. They spend time doing fun things like fishing, gardening, biking, etc. This year we are making my husband his favorite dessert from scratch. We also wanted to share a fun and simple Father’s Day art and craft project your kids can do for their dads.

It is a DIY project that incorporates science because you are combining kitchen ingredients such as flour and water to make puffy paint. It is a simple activity that kids will not forget. My son, Cory, did this Father’s Day art and craft project for his dad in under 10 minutes.

When making puffy paint, many times shaving cream is required. However, there is no need for shaving cream in this project!

Below is what’s needed for this project…

Self Rising Flour



Food Coloring

Cotton Swab

Card Stock Paper

My son decided to make a puffy heart for his dad. However, your child can make any drawing they like with the colors of their choice.

The video below shows you step-by-step how to make the puffy paint project. It comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please like and subscribe if you enjoy what you see.

Have fun with this activity!
