It was Little B's 2nd birthday so we had balloons around.
I hung some up under the deck stairs outside to let the boys paint them with washable paint.
They had SO MUCH FUN with this! Not only did they paint the balloons, but there was lots of spinning, batting, kicking, punching...it ended up to be a gross motor activity for sure.
At first Little B was frustrated because the balloon kept moving away from him when he tried to paint it (which was really funny to watch actually lol) He figured out how to get a good grip on it while bending over to get the paint and then keep a hold of it while painting. Toddler problem solving!
L liked to get a bunch of paint on his hand and then spin the balloon to completely cover it with paint.
By the end, they looked like this...which is pretty much the norm around here.
Although that red all over is a bit unnerving haha! :)
