I love this activity and how it blends the paint, but I have yet to do it with my son because I am very very anxious about balloons and toddlers. Please be careful with any kids who still mouth things with latex balloons. 1. Gather your materials. You will need a balloon, a dish , paint and some paper. 2. Pour a little paint into the dish, I like to mix it in the dish for cool results. 3. Blow up your balloon and dip it in! 4. Gently press the balloon onto the paper , move and press again. I loved the results of this one, you can leave it as is or cut it into a fun fall shape, fold it to make a card or whatever else you think up!
