Hanging Balloon Painting

Pin It

It was Little B's 2nd birthday so we had balloons around. 
I hung some up under the deck stairs outside to let the boys paint them with washable paint. 

They had SO MUCH FUN with this! Not only did they paint the balloons, but there was lots of spinning, batting, kicking, ended up to be a gross motor activity for sure. 

At first Little B was frustrated because the balloon kept moving away from him when he tried to paint it (which was really funny to watch actually lol) He figured out how to get a good grip on it while bending over to get the paint and then keep a hold of it while painting. Toddler problem solving! 

L liked to get a bunch of paint on his hand and then spin the balloon to completely cover it with paint. 

By the end, they looked like this...which is pretty much the norm around here.
Although that red all over is a bit unnerving haha! :)

  4. For kids birthday parties are really fun and entertainment. Every kid wants to invite all the friends in a birthday celebration, so that they can play games together and enjoy at their fullest. When it comes to arranging the party, then parents have to do a little planning to make the party a successful event. Balloons in a party are really necessary as they are being used from traditional times, but know there are varieties of designer balloons available in market today that can bring charm and pleasure for kids.
    The idea of painting the balloons in interesting as it is actually one of the creative ideas and apart from this with this you can make your child indulged in some activity. When it was the 2nd birthday of a small child in our home, we had planned for a party. We invited kids in the party and there were different activities and games of balloons. We decorated the hall and garden with balloons all over. Kids were having a great fun and they were enjoying a lot with the decorative and different colours of balloons.
    All the dinner in the party was one of the favourite’s choices of kids. We also distributed gifts, balloons to the winners of the games and return gifts to all. When it comes to purchasing balloons, then one should buy them from the right place. To know more about various type of balloons for kids parties you can have a look here at
