In continuing with our balloon extravaganza :
we painted balloons today.
We painted them two ways :
(1) paint before blowing up the balloons
(2) paint blown up balloons
I liked painting the balloons beforehand the best.
It had a sense of mystery.
What will this look like when it gets big?
Henry wasn’t as interested as I was
in painting the balloons before they were blown up.
He only made one.
He spent most of his time painting ‘lines’ on the blown up ones.
(I wish I counted how many times he told me: ‘Mom, I’m painting lines.’)
Then I blew up the ones we painted before blowing them up.
Henry was excited to see what happened then!
His was completely covered when it was little.
But once it blew up : it was barely marbled!
and only on half – the line it pretty distinct.
I painted dots on mine.
When I blew it up, Henry noticed :
“Mom, your dots are getting BIG!”
Not art that will stick around long like the 12x12s.
But a fun medium to try!
