THE PROCESS OF BALLOON PRINTING
Balloon Printing is super simple and is so much fun for kids or anyone really! I mean, who doesn’t want to paint with balloons, right?! The materials you will need to have on hand are:
- balloons (we typically use water balloons because of their small size)
- paper plates
- heavy cardstock paper
Leaving it as an open-ended art activity is fantastic and works especially great for toddlers. For preschool age or older, using balloon prints for fun craft projects is also a great way to enjoy the activity. We have made Ladybugs, Bees, Flowers and a Caterpillar with balloon prints and today I’m showing you how simple it is to make cute little chicks. These little guys are inspired by some fun potato print chicks we have pinned on Pinterest.
In addition to the materials listed above, you’ll also need:
- orange cardstock paper
- googly eyes
- orange oil pastel or crayon
1. Use green paint to make balloon print grass at the bottom of your paper. Also, use yellow paint to make prints onto your paper for the chicks. Let your paper dry completely.
2. Cut small triangle beaks out of your orange cardstock and glue them onto your yellow balloon prints along with some googly eyes.
3. Use your orange oil pastel or crayon to draw feet and feathers onto your chicks.
