This is how we paint

This year I have had a group of boys who are not so into crafts as I would like. So I find the more creative I am with them the more interested they are in the experience. I wish I had videoed this because I set up the craft called them in showed them what to do and within 5 minutes they were out the door. At least some paint landed on the paper.

 Using the pie tins worked well because the balloon takes up so much space
 This is a craft that you want to have set up before they even see it, once they saw the balloons that's all they could think about. I had some extra for them to play with after.
 I also write everyone names on the pages before they sit down because I know how quickly things can get mixed up.
 And then there was one.
My little guy loves to paint and always ends up being the last one at the table. Since he made about 10 of these I saved them and used them as birthday cards and tags for gifts. Thinking we might do a red and green wrapping paper like this come Christmas. Easy and 100% kid made.

Happy painting.
