Puffy Paint Ice Cream Collages.
This week we’ve been getting stuck into some ice-cream inspired arts and crafts activities in celebration of the many we’ve been eating due to the (mostly!) lovely sunny weather we’ve been enjoying.
First on our list was to create some puffy paint ice-cream pictures. Puffy paint is something I keep reading about but it’s not something we’d tackled before. But it sounded perfect for whipping up some ice-cream pictures with.

How to make Puffy Paint
We added a few drizzles of green paint to my 6 year olds sons “mint ice-cream” and a few drizzles of green paint and a dash cocoa powder to my 4 year olds “mint-chocolate ice-cream”. This smelt better than it looked but he was delighted with it. My daughter mixed up
her favourite pink paint into her mixture with a little help to create her favourite “Strawberry ice-cream”. I let my two sons loose on the shaving foam can and they thought it was hilarious when it came squirting out!
I cut out “ice-cream cones” out of scraps of cardboard. We then glued them onto paper and drew the outlines of our ice-creams with pencil ready to be filled with the puffy paint.
The kids had a great time using brushes to load up their ice-creams, they certainly didn’t hold back when it came to the toppings either. We used some glitter and some shiny stars in place of their favourite “ice-cream sprinkles”.
The session was a big success and we had a whole shop full of ice-creams made by the end of it.

I'm looking forward to Gwenn being old enough to get into "making", although I suspect I will be a massive disappointment to her because I am USELESS! At least there are blogs like yours that can give me a helping hand.
Visiting from the Mad Midweek Blog Hop!
Just have a go and see where it takes you!
Great idea. I always love trying different textures etc for punting and creativity. Their ice creams look great.

It was so easy to make and the kids really did enjoy it.

It s just a shame it s ice cream you cant eat as well!
That looks like a lot of fun, it's so great to get creative and messy with the children, my daughters would love this as it is so tactile and sensory #MMWBH (My Family Ties)
It would be great to get stucjpk into with your hands as well and i m surprised my kids didn t really as they don t usually need an excuse to get messy!
Looks like a great idea, think we will be trying this one very soon, I love how you put the cones on the plate… creates a framed creation straight away 😉
Thanks yes i thought the plate would make an interesting way to "frame it"
What a great activity for the summer, my little girl would love this! I'm pinning to remind myself to do it 🙂 #brilliantblogposts
