We love trying out new painting ideas and this peeps puffy paint is really fun. We also have two other puffy paint recipes that you can try.  The first is a shaving foam and glue puffy paint. Once dry it stays really puffy and feels soft to the touch.  The second is a microwave puffy paint made from flour, salt and water that puffs up when heated in the microwave. This one really wows children as it seems to magically puff up when placed in the microwave. 

The special thing about this peeps puffy paint recipe is that it is edible which means that you don't have to worry about younger children putting it near their mouth. Other taste safe or edible painting ideas that we have enjoyed are taste safe ice painting and painted toast

Peeps Edible Puffy Paint Recipe

To make this fun edible puffy paint begin by placing one Peeps candy in a microwave safe plastic bowl.  Place the bowl in the microwave for about 10 seconds. The Peeps will puff up to about 3 times their normal size. Leave them for a second to go back down to just a little bigger than their normal size. Young children will love watching this process.

Give the heated Peeps candy a stir. If all of the marshmallow is not melted, return the bowl to the microwave for a further 5 seconds. When stirred, the marshmallow should puff up into a smooth and tacky substance that can be applied to a paintbrush.

Make sure the peeps puffy paint is cool enough to touch and then give it to your child to paint with. They can either dip a paintbrush into the paint or use their fingers for a more sensory experience.

As the Peeps candy cools down, it will begin to become harder to work with. You can simply return it to the microwave for 5 seconds before continuing to use it. It is best to work with one colour of peeps puffy paint at a time as it needs to be slightly warm to be workable.
