Puffy Paint Experiment

This STEAM activity is very simple to do and uses basic kitchen supplies, plus a microwave! For complete instructions you’ll have to get the book! But basically you and your kids will mix up two or more puffy paint recipes, create designs using the puffy paint on paper plates and compare what happens when they are microwaved!

    The book looks amazing, I teach at a title one elementary school and we just received our stem certification last year, now we want to add arts into it. This book looks like a way to do that!
