One of my favorite sensory “paints” is our puffy snow paint. It’s roughly equal parts shaving creme (cheap, plain, not menthol, not gel) and white glue. Stir in some glitter, add some Styrofoam balls and foam shapes and let the fun begin! The texture is soft and puffy like meringue. It feels nicer than finger paint and spreads with a brush or plastic palette knife. When it dries, a soft crust develops so that when you lightly touch it, it springs back like a marshmallow.
