I am in love with these simple and lovely Balloon drawings that Putti has made.
Remember, Putti had a room full of balloons waiting for her on her 4th Birthday morning? After more than a week of continued Balloon Play, I thought this was the time to try make some balloon art with all those balloons lying around in her room. When I suggested we can draw on these balloons Putti liked the idea and jumped right into it:) Washable markers smeared more easily and so we used Permanent markers. If you will be doing this with young kids, carefully supervise them.
Here's Putti making her first few lines...
She was amused by the funny sound the balloon made as she drew with her marker. But did not like the balloon slipping away, so I had to hold the balloon for her to draw....
This is her first balloon... love the line doodlings..
She soon developed her own techinque to do this. She would just glide her markers on the balloon, while I had to keep rolling the balloon in various directions. It was FUN !!!
Next, she made some dots. But realised they can be made into balloons just by drawing a
I had a phone call and could not hold the balloon for her. But she did not want to stop, so tried holding the balloon in different positions and finally felt resting the balloon on her lap and holding it was very comfortable for her to draw. Now on she did not need me...
Beautiful flowers isn't it....
Some stars, names and other drawings...
Faces and people, that green guy was made by her appa as per her instructions..
I think this can become a great activity for kids and adults at any party!! Also is a fun way to make your own personalised balloons:))
Stay tuned to more ballooney fun !!!
