Just Add Water: Cornstarch Packing Peanut Art

Did you know you can make sculptures with water
and cornstarch packing peanuts?!
Mini-Saurus received these great Rainbocornstarch packing peanuts
 from her summer swap buddy.

Her crafty mama even included this super cute note
reminding us to add a bit of water and play with them.

We do follow instructions around here.

During Mini-Saurus' nap, the Frog Princess and I couldn't help ourselves.
(when she woke up, we let her play too!)

We had a small can of water, a couple of soft watercolor brushes
and a lot of fun making rainbow sculptures.

I have THREE GIANT bags of them in the craft closet! I think it is about time to break them out again! Super fun for making crowns!

Looks like fun!

So weird you posted this today! Last afternoon, we were at Joann's and my husband -though he was barely hanging on (hates Joann's - thinks it makes men 10 years older every time they walk in) saw these cute peanuts. I made a note to get some for B's birthday. How much fun are they? And aren't they biodegradable?

What a cool thing for you package to be packed in. A bonus toy. So fun!

Lisa said...

How fun! I've never seen them before! Very cute!
Have a good one!

Your house must be the funnest in town with all the crafts and art you do!

We have these at school. I HAVE to remember to get them out!

That's awesome!
I never would have thought of using them for sculpting or painting.
I don't have any, mind you, but I'll consider them the next time I do!
