To make these adorable painted easter egg balloons and to play the balloon pop game you will need:
-Balloons in the color of your choice
-Paint and brushes
-String (about 2 feet for each kid)
1. Blow up two balloons per kid, or however many you would like. Paint your balloons in any patterns or colors, doodle all over the surface with markers, or get creative with the washi tape.
2. Allow the painted balloons to dry for an hour or two. You can accelerate the drying time by using a hair dryer on the cool setting if you so desire.
3. Tie a foot of string to each balloon end and securely tie around your child's ankles.
I would like to note that I think this game is appropriate for kids ages 3 and up. I also feel like this game isn't only for kids. I could actually see this balloon pop game being more fun for the adults at an Easter egg hunt, or anytime for that matter!
