This type of printing is one of my kids utter favourites and we have spent many hours experimenting with different colours to create some fantastic art work! Balloon printing gives such unique and individual results each time and is sure to be a big hit! (Adult supervision is required otherwise you may have quite a bit of water on your hands – and not in the balloon)!!!
To balloon print you will need – water balloons, paper and paints.
1 – Begin by filling your water balloons and setting out your different coloured paints. (I use disposable take away food trays which I wash and re-use for paint activities).
2 – Gently dip your balloon into your paint and print gently onto your paper. (Gently does it)!
3 – Build up your pattern or create a picture using the circle prints.
We had lots of fun using the balloons to create different pictures and different patterns! This is a perfect activity for kids who love printing in a slightly different way to the usual! It is also a lovely sensory activity as the balloons do feel fab for little hands.
We made lots of different pictures and patterns with the balloons! A simple, different way to create some lovely artwork!
