DIY: Chalk Puff Paint

Now that the weather is beginning to warm up, I am just itching to soak up as much vitamin D as I can get. Still with the social distancing it can prove difficult. I know my amigos have been going stir crazy and so I’ve had do come up with some creative and somewhat wild activities to keep them occupied and not upset that they have to stay 6 feet away from their friends. Lemme tell you, I have heard every possible way that hide-and-seek could be played while social distancing.

Chalk puff paint is exactly one of those hair-brained ideas that flourished out of desperation. This little craft is super easy to make and you most likely already have all of the ingredients at home.

Chalk Puff Paint

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • squeeze bottle


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cold tap water
  • cup Barbasol Shaving Cream
  • food coloring


  • In a bowl, mix together flour and water until smooth. Try to not have any clumps because they will probably clog the squeeze bottle.
  • Add in the Barbasol shaving cream, mix until combined.
  • Add in the desired food coloring, the more drops the stronger the color.
  • Pour mixture into a ziplock bag or disposable frosting bag and then squeeze the mixture into the squeeze bottles. I attempted this by just spooning the mixture into a funnel at the top of the squeeze bottle. It was a no-go. Too thick and light to be able to work its way down the funnel.
  • Place the cap on the squeeze bottle and send your kiddos outside to create.

The squeeze bottles I used, I found on Amazon. I wanted ones that would be easy to fill and I wouldn’t care about if they became damaged. Another cheap option is to save squeezy condiment bottles like mustard, mayo, and ketchup and re-purpose those bottles.

Do you have any fun DIY crafts you’ve been doing with your kiddos lately? How have you been keeping from going stir crazy during this weird social distancing time? Hope y’all are having an amazing week!
