We are always looking for new, fun 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 (small)


corn starch

food coloring

squirt bottles

and two children in underwear – LOL  

(We really DO dress our children, they just don’t seem to stay that way! LOL)

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!
