If you’ve never made puffy paint plastic cutouts before, then you’re missing out. This is the perfect afternoon activity for kids full of energy. Plus it’s so easy, even toddlers can do it. So, let’s get started!
My son got the idea to use puffy paints with plastic cutouts the other day. We already had the puffy paints so the rest was really easy. The kids really loved it. Here’s how you can do yours today.
Print and cutout your templates
So, you have eight different plastic cutouts to choose from. Click on the link below to download your FREE template right now:
You can choose from a bubble gum machine, fish bowl, snow globe, microwave, window, mason jars, swimming goggles and a TV. All of my kids were so excited about all of the options.
Once you’ve chosen your templates, cut them out and then cut a hole in the corresponding area where you will be attaching the plastic.
Attach plastic sheet to template
Next, you’ll need either some gallon Ziploc bags, clear plastic sheets, or sheet protectors. Cut a section of plastic that is slightly larger than the hole on the cutout. Then just hot glue the plastic to the template.
We ended up cutting out almost all of the templates. My kids wanted to do them all. I did all of the prep work so the kids could just have fun using the puffy paints.
Start adding your puffy paints
Now for the fun part. Let your kids choose which template they would like. Then, give them the puffy paints and let them use their imaginations.
All of our puffy paint plastic cutouts turned out so cute. Each of my kids added their own special touch. They had a lot of fun doing it too. Make sure you allow the puffy paints to dry overnight before you touch it. Your kids are going to love it!
