Messy Backyard Fun! Ballon Process Art

My son had a ball doing this balloon process art! It's a great backyard activity! We just stamped a piece of cardboard. But the possibilities are endless! Had it been warmer I would have used water balloons dipped in paint and let him throw them. Of course, it's all about the process, not the end result, so have fun with it!

Here's what you need:
acrylic paint
cardboard, paper, or canvas

You'll want to dress your little one in old clothes for this project! We had quite a few spills and splatters. A.K.A. We ruined some clothes-but it was fun! Well worth it! :)

Just dip balloon in paint.

Stamp on cardboard.

Remove and repeat as desired.

Originally I saw an indoor, less messy version of this posted by on Pinterest. But I knew that a toddler would have a hard time keeping everything neatly printed and the area orderly. So that's why we moved our project outside. But if you have older kids you should definitely check out their link-

Happy Painting!
