What you'll need
Step by step guide
- Pour out a small quantity of different colour paints into small dishes or a paint palette. Lay out a large piece of paper over a washable surface (e.g. kitchen floor)
- Half blow up one balloon of each color that matches a paint color. We only half blow up the balloon so that kids can grab them easily.
- Dip the balloon in the relevant color and use it to paint, seeing the difference between pressing lightly and hard.
- It's OK for the paint colors to get mixed a bit as the artwork is created.
