365: Hot Air Balloon Day

June 5 is Hot Air Balloon Day. Hot air balloons are the oldest form of flying for humans.

I thought it might be fun to make our own hot air balloon decorations. As of publish, the balloons were not dry, so I will have to update with our final products when they're ready.
1. watercolor paper
2. tissue paper
3. Spray bottle

1. Spray paper with water
2. Have the kids put down tissue paper (that is pre-cut up)
3. Let the child spray more
4. Put down wet paper towel over
5. Let it dry overnight
6. Pull up the tissue paper
7. Add string and a little basket to make a beautiful decoration!

For younger children, you can take the paper, wet it yourself, stick on the tissue paper, put a wipe over it, and put it in a plastic baggie! (Shown below)
