@kaylahollomon Replying to @Taee_Moniquee Omg such a cute puffy paint animal. It looks like paint instead of food coloring works great too! I personally like acryllic paint vs. Water paint for the color. #puffypaint #kidsactivities #activityforkids #crafts #crafttok #kidstiktok #momsoftiktok #greenscreen ♬ Rush – Ayra Starr

Puffy Paint Lion Preparation
Now, let’s break it down step by step:
1. Cutting the Lion’s Face
Begin by drawing and then cutting out a lion’s face from the yellow construction paper. Make sure it fits well within the boundary of your paper plate.
2. Glue the Face onto the Plate
Glue the construction paper lion face onto the paper plate, ensuring it’s centered and smooth.
3. Bringing the Face to Life
Position the wiggly eyes on your lion’s face. With a permanent marker, draw a cheerful lion nose and mouth.
4. Make the Puffy Paint
Combine equal parts of shaving cream and white glue. For an extra fluffy feel, toss in more shaving cream. Stir in the yellow acrylic paint to reach a radiant lion hue.
5. Texture Time
Guide your little artist to paint over the lion’s face on the plate with the puffy paint mixture. Allow it to dry completely, bestowing our lion with a playful, 3D effect.
