Project CAT - Challenge #10: Puffy Paint Fair Foods

Hello! Welcome to the last day of Project CAT! It is Trevor again. We're ending Project CAT with two of my favorite summer things... going to the fair and food!

This is what we're making:

Materials: self-rising flour, salt, food color, water, spoons, q-tips, index cards, pens, sprinkles

Step 1: If you don't have self-rising flour, make some. (It's just flour, salt and baking powder.) Use it to make puffy paint. We used the recipe from Happy Hooligans.  

Step 2: Use the q-tip to spread the puffy paint on a piece of paper (we used index cards). Make a design like a sno-cone, cotton candy, ice cream, or donut. You can decorate them with real sprinkles!

Step 3: Put the artwork in the microwave for 30 seconds. 

Here are some samples of what it looks like before and after.

Step 4: Using pens, decorate the index cards with cones, sticks, or whatever else. OR...

...you can peel the foods off the paper!


After you peel them off the paper, you can use the paper to make cones.

Now it's your turn! Make puffy paint fair foods or something inspired by my craft for a chance to win. Remember, Project CAT ends on Sunday at 12:00 Pacific. I will be back on Monday to announce the winners. Good luck! I love all of your entries so far!
