Another rainy afternoon and my daughter needed something to get out of her boredom. Balloons are fun and children love all the colours.

I checked my kitchen drawers for inspiration and here’s what we made.

You will need:

Balloons (any colour you prefer)

Paint, Paint Brush

Cupcake cases, marker

Glue (we used PVA white glue)


Blow up your Balloon and tie it. Decide where you want to put your hair how high or low. Start glueing the cupcake cases one next to the other by creating a line of about 6 cupcake cases – depending on the size (mini-regular size).

I usually add the glue on the balloon so my daughter knows where to place the cupcake case.



We made 2 lines of approximately 12 cupcake cases.

Children can now draw with their brush over your dots  – you can guide their hand.

Let it seat over a small vase for a few moments to make sure the glue is dry.


And voila your happy faces little craft.


When my daughter held the balloon in her hands and said: ‘ Hello, how are you and giggled’, I knew she was a happy child.

She really enjoyed this activity and she even asked me to create a family of balloons.

Be creative with what you’ve got. It’s all about having fun and learning to sit on a chair by doing some crafts.I’m sure this will help a lot when they go to school.

I believe that this activity is a good coordination exercise but also a fun for the children since they can see the result and most importantly they made this!!
