Cupcake case and balloon craft- aka The Funny Faces
Balloons are fun and children love all th colours.
I checked my kitchen drawers for inspiration and here's what we made.
- Balloons any color you like
- Paint any color you like
- Cupcake cases any
- Glue (we used PVA white glue)
- Paint Brush
Blow up your Balloon and tie it. Decide where you want to put your hair how high or low.
Start gluing 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 put the glue on the balloon and my daughter knows where to
place the cupcake case.
We made 2 lines of approximately 12 cupcake cases.
Now use your marker to draw they eyes (draw one large dot for each eye), and one more dot for the nose and the mouth (draw a big line / smile).
Prepare your paint and soak your brush.
When my daughter took the balloon in her hands and said: ‘ Hello,how are you and giggled’ .
She really enjoyed this activity and she even asked me to create a family of balloons.
I believe that this activity is a good coordination exercise but also a fun time for the children since they can see the result and most importantly they made this!!
We hope you enjoyed this tutorial, have fun and let us know what you think.
