Balloon dart painting is a fun way (if a little messy!) to have a creative activity with your kids. It combines bright colours and the fun of random action to create a unique abstract painting.
A list of the items needed:
- Balloon pump
- Washable paint
- Some form of board, canvas or other.
- Push pins
- A large cloth to contain the mess that will result.
Given the nature of the objects used (darts) it should be considered suitable for only older children. But, in fact, some of the posts featured below demonstrate that this is a craft experience that can be fun for adults as well!
