Balloon Painting

The children showed me today how much fun and delightful
playing with a water balloon in paint can be.

 It started like I thought it would, 
gently holding on to the balloon
and painting.
 But as the morning progressed and different children approached
the table, especially younger children,
 it became more of a fingerpainting activity.
The lightly inflated balloons are easy to grip
and bounce nicely too.
Look at the girl at the top of the picture,
the glee on her face when her fingers get covered with paint.
 A few did begin to add details,
 and label their artwork.
He is pointing out the snowman's cheeks, here and here
and here.
