We really love the balloon pop art here at the respite house. I believe the kids must talk about the activities that we do here because this Sensory Sunday we had a request for the balloon pop art from someone who hasn’t been here for this activity.
so I Filled the balloons like I always do. I got covered in paint like I always do. The interesting bit is that the two people helping to fill the balloons stayed clean. I must just be a messy person.
Balloon Pop Art – Splattered kids
At least the kids got messy too! Here is Izzy and her friend with paint splattered on them.

The wet one (bottom pic) was so much more vibrant and beautiful. Once it dried it lost some of the wow to me. we left the balloon pieces on the board this time and I feel it added an interesting touch to the finish project.
Painting on the basketball court concrete is a favorite activity of many of our guests. There is something quite enjoyable about adding color to a typically grey slab of rock. The fact that it’ll fade then disappear doesn’t seem to matter. We pull out our tempera paints, plastic plates for palettes and various brushes. I usually fill up a bucket or two with water for easy clean up. The kids usually start off with brushes but then soon into the activity hands and feet are covered with paint as well.
Some of my girls decided to start throwing the plates like Frisbees and learned that the paint makes pretty patterns.
Splatter painting tends to be a popular choice on the concrete.
