DIY Rubbing Plates

For those of you that have tried the microwave puffy paint... 

Here is another great addition to it... DIY Rubbing Plates!

We have been creating and experimenting with this paint a lot ever since we discovered it.   Girls love it.    

After they were done playing with the paints my daughter asked to color.  I can't tell you the last time she wanted to color... I was excited about this one!  We received some Soy Rock Crayons in the mail yesterday and she couldn't wait to get her hands on them.  The crayons can be seen here.  Perfect for Rubbing Plates.  :-)  

I set up this invitation.  As you can tell my 17M old wanted nothing to do with this one!  LOL  

Microwave Puffy Paint Crayon Rubbings.  

It was nice to see some excitement about crayons again!  :-)  

She had a hard time holding the paper down and coloring....

So I taped it down.  She asked to do her animal plates for the next few.  

Also taped down the paper

"Look Mommy, it's a cow!"
