Home & Family shares another great DIY and this one is my favorite so far! Not only does it relate to home projects, but also desert! Who wants ice cream? 

DIY expert Maria Provenzano walks us through how to make a puffy paint ice cream cone that won’t melt. Even though our summer plans might be limited this year, Maria provides a fun way for us to celebrate the start of summer.

Plus, this is a great craft to do if you have left over school supplies!

“To make our puffy paint I have school glue, shaving cream, and paint..you’ll also want some scissors, crayons..part of a cardboard box, and some construction paper.

Step One: To create your cone use a cardboard paper. Maria draws her cone shape to be 4 inches long and 4 inches wide. Then cut your cone and glue onto your construction paper.

Step Two: To make your puffy paint all you need to do is combine your shaving cream and school glue (this is the part that kids really enjoy)!

Step Three: Now that you’ve created your puffy paint, you can add color! Divide the puffy paint into two separate bowls. Maria uses pink and purple. Use a popsicle stick (or any utensil) to dip into the color paint and then mix it with your puffy paint. You can add as many colors as you would like.

Step Four: Take your paint brush and start painting your ice cream onto the construction paper (above where you glued your cardboard cone). 

Step Five: If you like to have your ice cream with sprinkles, you can add crayon shavings on top. Some crayon boxes have sharpeners in the back. If your crayon box doesn’t come with a sharpener then just grab an extra one. Choose your favorite color, and while you’re sharpening your crayon, sprinkle the shavings on top of your puffy paint.
