President's Day Craft with Puffy Paint

To start, I made some puffy paint. Puffy paint is just equal parts of shaving cream and school glue. For the brown paint, I added some brown tempera paint to the mixture. 

We cut out a blue hat for George Washington and a black hat for Abe Lincoln. Then we glued it on the paper plate.  We cut the sides of Lincoln's face so it looked longer. Then the kids drew on a face. The final step was to paint the puffy paint on the face. This was their favorite part because I let them use their hands for this step.
