Balloon Art

We made balloon art in class today! Inspired by Jackson Pollock, our class splatter-painted with balloons filled with rice and made beautiful art work! The rice also makes a fun sound when you shake the balloons. This is a great, easy art project you can do at home. Just make sure you have a messy mat, because the paint will splatter!

  • 3 colors of paint of your choice
  • 1 piece of construction paper 
  • 1 balloon
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked rice
  • Funnel
  1. Blow balloon up about a quarter full. 
  2. The balloon should not get full of air, or else it will pop. 
  3. Using a funnel, fill the balloon with rice and tie off the balloon. 
  4. Dip balloon in paint and have at it!
