Earth Balloon Painting

Let’s paint a picture of our planet, as seen from space! This activity is a great way to try painting with some different materials. The half-filled balloons present a fun challenge and lets your child play with the shapes that the balloon makes on the paper. The round shape of the Earth works well with the circular “brush strokes” of the balloon. Scroll down for the Spanish version!

Materials:

• 2 balloons
• Green paint
• Blue Paint
• Paper

Directions:

1. Blow up both balloons half-way
2. Dip one balloon in blue paint
3. Dip the other balloon in green paint
4. Use the balloons to make images of the earth by combining the blue and green
5. Make sure to throw used balloons away in the trash when finished

More Fun:

• Draw the planet Earth with a marker onto a balloon while it is still completely deflated. Blow up the balloon. What happened to your drawing?
• Try painting the whole solar system using balloons

Pintura de Globo Terráqueo con Globos

¡Pintemos una imagen de nuestro planeta, como se ve desde el espacio! Esta actividad es una excelente manera de intentar pintar con algunos materiales diferentes. Los globos a medio llenar presentan un desafío divertido y le permiten a su hijo jugar con las formas que el globo hace en el papel. La forma redonda de la Tierra funciona bien con las “pinceladas” circulares del globo.

Materiales:

• 2 globos
• Pintura verde
• Pintura azul
• Papel

Direcciones:

1. Inflan ambos globos hasta la mitad
2. Sumerja un globo en pintura azul
3. Sumerja el otro globo en pintura verde
4. Usa los globos para crear imágenes de la tierra combinando el azul y el verde.
5. Asegúrese de tirar los globos usados a la basura cuando termine

Más diversión
• Dibuja el planeta Tierra con un marcador en un globo mientras aún está completamente desinflado. Inflan el globo. ¿Qué pasó con tu dibujo?
• Intenten pintar todo el sistema solar con globos.
