Painting with balloons – Art

Materials needed: balloons, poster paints, paint trays, paper.


Painting with Balloons is a great activity to explore creatively and imaginatively as you create freely using simple props in an open-ended and unstructured way. It also makes a great sensory activity as children use their hands to manipulate the paint and balloons to create patterns and prints onto paper.

Partially inflate the balloons so that they are a size that the children can easily pick up the balloons. You can match your balloon colour to the colour of your paint, perhaps a good matching activity? You can mix and blend colours to create new colours. The pressing of the balloons onto the paper can either be controlled to make a pattern or it can be free and spontaneous, which personally I think is more fun!
