Rainbow Sensory Balloons & Painting

Recently we tried making sensory balloons & painting. I see Play At Home Mom recently posted about a similar activity using filled balloons as a sensory activity.

Sensory Balloons & Painting

Our balloons were filled with flour, rice, pasta, salt, water and corn from a sensory bin.

The kids really enjoyed guessing what was in each one. The flour and water were especially enjoyable to manipulate.  After playing with them and guessing what was in each balloon, we made paintings.

Very colorful paintings with such neat patterns and effects from the filled balloons. A great activity we’ll do again!

We've never painted with sensory balloons! (Water balloons filled with air, so somewhat similar, yet different!) Thanks for giving me a new inspiring idea and Thanks for linking up over at the PreKandK Sharing We LOVE Paint linky party!

This is neat. I filled a balloon with rice today just for fun. My little boy said I ruined the balloon. Ha.
