We started with balloons, flour, water, craft glue, newspaper and a variety of orange paints.
My 5 year old was in charge of all the gross stuff - mixing and dipping the newpaper in the flour mixture.
We hung them on the clothesline. It was a breezy, sunny day so it didn't take long to dry.
Then the fun part - popping the balloon!
Both of the boys had a blast painting...
Final product. I think they did a pretty good job. They kinda of look like the vintage paper mache candy containers. All I can say is they had a lot of fun.
