It’s B week in kindergarten starting tomorrow. We are going to make these amazing balloon bowls which I kind of stumbled upon by accident. They started off as hot air balloons from Collage Collage. After I slaved over the first balloon, which took waaay longer than I thought, I accidentally popped the balloon inside while removing the tape holding it to the cup. Turned out to be a major blessing in disguise because I realized the balloon separates itself from the tissue paper in the COOLEST way, with sound effects and everything, and I could trim it into a supercool bowl. From there I tried balloons in different sizes because there is no way the kids are going to sit for 45 minutes modge podging. I am so pleased with the process and the results, especially the balloon popping. The kids will love that part. Stay tuned for pictures of their balloon bowls. I tried to include pictures of every step. I really encourage you to try this at home! Really fun project!
Here are the steps. 1. Attach a balloon to a cup with duct tape. Make sure to put the tape on four sides of the balloon to keep it secure. 2. Modge Podge the whole balloon where you want the bowl shape to be. 3. Cover with tissue paper. 4. Let dry in the sun. 5. POP the balloon and watch it shrivel up and separate from the tissue paper. 6. Reshape the bowl. 7. Hem the edge if you want. It looks cool ragged too.
