Step by step guide

  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. Dip the balloon in the relevant color and use it to paint, seeing the difference between pressing lightly and hard.
  4. It's OK for the paint colors to get mixed a bit as the artwork is created.
