  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Water


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together!
  2. Then, add enough water to "make it the consistency of pancake batter".
  3. Divide "batter" into four parts and put them in a small plastic ziploc bag.
  4. Put a few drops of food coloring in the bag to make your color.
  5. Squish up the bag until mixed.
  6. Happiness is homemade says to rubber band the baggies like you would if you were icing a cake and snip off the teeniest little bit of the tip.
  7. Paint away! (You can paint on paper or paper plates!)
  8. After you're done painting, put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or so and watch the paint "puff"

Destry's Note: My daughter loved this and created a dozen paintings with her friend!
