Miss M and I have talked about trying this activity for a few days now and since we had a lovely big bag of balloons leftover from her party, balloon painting was definitely the thing to do today.
You will need....
Choose a few balloon to use - one for each paint colour works well.
Fill the balloons with a little bit of water to give them some weight.
Tie knots in the ends of the balloons.
Have paint set out in trays - we used paper plates and used two acrylic colours that mix well.
Use the balloons as paint brushes by holding them by the knot.
The effect on paper will be wonderful splodges all over the paper.
Just remember to handle the balloons carefully so they don't pop!
Both the girls had fun with this activity. Miss H being so little had quite a bit of help from me but it was fun for her to experiment too. It's good to substitute the old paintbrush for something a little bit different. Balloon painting is lots of fun - why not give it a go?
