Painting with Balloons

So moving on with our Painting Project Series, we decided to paint with balloons today. Busy loves everything about balloons. She likes all sizes, colors and shapes and loves to make up her own experiments using balloons. We have made zip lines, tested sound differences in varying balloon shapes, filled them with water and frozen them. And we have many other fun things up our sleeves! So when I saw this on Kiwi Crate I knew we had to try it!


  • balloons
  • paper plates
  • paper (we used textured paper)
  • paint
How to do it:
  1. Blow up balloons to a size your child can hold in their hand.
  2. Pour out a little paint on paper plates (two colors on each plate).
  3. We used one balloon for each paint color and began by dipping the balloon in the paint and pushing the balloon on the paper to make a balloon print. 
  4. You can mix colors by overlapping and it looks really cool. 
  5. Once dry, hang it in your art gallery and enjoy!
