Can you use regular paint if you don’t have any puffy paint?
Of course! While the texture and look may be a bit different, you can use whatever paint that you have in the house! The puffy paint just makes it a bit more unique, but if your toddler wants to paint, let them paint!
How long does it take for the puffy paint to dry?
I’d give it a good couple of hours to be certain it’s dried completely. It is a bit thicker of a paint, so it’s a good idea to move the sunflower toddler craft to a different location and let it dry fully once your toddler is done painting it.
See how simple this sunflower puffy paint craft is? It’s one that you can literally do almost any time of the year! And when that sun is shining, you can even take it outside and let them create in nature!

Yes! 1 year olds can do this sunflower toddler craft as long as they have supervision to avoid putting the paint in their mouths. Using tools like cotton balls or q tips in addition to a paintbrush make this fun and easy for toddlers to create.
If you wanted to make this taste-safe and more about the process than the finished product, you could alternatively color Cool Whip with food coloring to paint with – this just might be a bit stickier, but fun for finger painting too!
