We are always looking for fun new ways to put a spin on something we have already tried – and loved.  Today we (AK and RL) filled balloons with the street paint concoction and let our children “paint with a splat”.  It was a bit of a learning experience as the larger balloons were difficult to pop – but all in all, it was fun.

Things you need:
balloons

water

corn starch

food coloring

squirt bottles

 

Fill the squirt bottles with the street paint mixture, blow the balloons up and quickly attach the balloon to the squirt bottles (pinching tight so the air does not leak), squirt in the mixture and tie off the balloon.

Things we might do differently next time – have a lot of them already made and let the children do a few themselves.  They really enjoyed the process, but were anxious to get to the balloon throwing.

 

Its GO time!

  1. Wow! I live in Japan and everything is neat and tidey. Then there is our house where the driveway is always brightly colored with hearts and smiley faces. I always wonder what they think of our crazy little house, with our crazy little people. Anywho… my crazy little people will love this. Marking this for spring!!!

    My husband just asked the same question as Anne. How did it clean up. He always sees me with stained fingers after using food coloring. GREAT idea! Can’t wait for spring!

    Love this idea! The photos aren’t working for me (says invalid URL), so I can’t tell the proportions. Can you give a recipe?
    Thanks,
    Megan
