After having so much fun with our fly swatter painting last week, we read another book illustrated by Stephen Gammell calledThe Burger and the Hot Dog. There are lots of funny food-related poems in this one!
Painting with water balloons was the perfect activity to replicate Gammell's splattery style. I used a plastic medicine syringe to put paint in some water balloons.
Filled them up (HATE this part - should've gotten better balloons.)
Drew loved it. Lainey's involvement was limited to squeezing a balloon and becoming irate when it popped in her hands.
Stomping the balloons:
The color was very light, I should have added more paint and less water. Either way, Drew wasn't much interested in the colors. He just liked breaking the balloons.
How've you been getting messy this week? I'd love for you to link up. I'll be sharing your ideas throughout the week on my facebook page and the Kid's Co-op Pinterest Board.
