Create balloon ghosts with your child and let their imaginations take flight. This a fun art and craft kids activity that encourages kids creativity as they create scary balloon ghosts out of balloons!
Number of players:
What you need:
- White balloons
- 2 white plastic grocery bags per balloon
- Black permanent marker
Cut the handles off the grocery bags.
If there are coloured markings on the bag, cut those off too.
Leaving the seam at the bottom of the bag intact, cut the bag into strips so it hangs like streamers from the bottom seam.
Blow up a white balloon.
Tape two of your cut up plastic bags around the bottom of your balloon, so the streamers hang from the bottom (see note).
Draw two eyes and a simple spooky mouth on the exposed part of your balloon using the permanent marker.
Your Balloon Ghost is now ready to hang or fly!
- If you plan on hanging your ghost balloons as decorations, tape the plastic bag streamers around the smooth end of the balloon. This is so you can use the tied end of the balloon to attach a string for hanging.
- These balloon characters can be turned into jellyfish for an underwater theme - just use lots of tropical colours for your balloons and bags, and draw on a happy face!
- Kids will love using these Balloon Ghosts as volleyballs in a fun game of Volley Balloons at a party!
