Balloon Paint

After several family birthday parties, we have been left with a
plethora of balloons. With the weather being very rainy here, we thought it was the perfect time for some balloon painting!

Your kids will love the idea of painting with something as different as balloons. Jonah thought his mom was crazy when she said he could dip his balloon in paint.

All you need is some tempera paints and balloons blown up small so kids can hold them. Cover your work space. Then put blobs of paint on a paper plate. Now you are ready to balloon paint!

Be prepared for your kids to make stacks of art work!

Let your kids dip the balloon into the paint and bounce it all over their paper. Jonah here figured out he could make little circles with the tied end of the balloon. You'll be amazed what your kids will discover.

The balloon makes amazing affects with the color and texture of the paint.

Have fun with this project. Look around your house and see what else you can find to paint with!
Come back Monday for a big announcement and giveaway!!

  5. oooo, good idea! I love to find creative ways to craft with the kids! We've painted with toy cars, bubble wrap, apples, q-tips, and even our fingers, but never balloons! I'll have to try it out!

  17. Messy fun is the best. I wonder what would happen if you put paint in the balloon and then popped it on the paper.
