Puffy Paint "Fun"

I was recruited by my friend Liz to help her with her "Mrs. Fun" project in Jackson and Christian's 4th grade class. We racked our brains for a cute idea and came up with nothing, but thanks to Katie Liz's little sister who had a great idea we were head in the right direction to be Mrs. and Mrs. Fun :) We headed to the store to get all the ingredients: equal parts self rising flour, salt and water oh and food mix it all together until it looks similar to frosting. Then comes the fun part, drawing your picture on card stock....not so easy with thick paint and not to mention that every time I got it on my fingers I licked it, can you say yuck!! Once your picture is done you just pop it in the microwave for roughly 30 seconds and *tada* you have a puffy cute 3D picture :) The kids all loved it and made some very cute pictures except for a few boys who just mixed all the colors together until it looked like baby poop and globed it on the paper...grrrr boys!! Landon and Alex came along to help and were very good. So now Liz and I are officially Mrs. "Fun" Cundick and Mrs. "Fun" Heugly if you please ;)
