Puffy Paint

Combine equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream until you have the thickness you want, then add 10 – 25 drops of food coloring to get the color you desire.

Then you can use a paint brush or put the puffy paint into a ziploc bag and cut the corner of it (like an icing bag) and make your picture that way.
