Hot air balloon - Paper mache

Up Up and away

Even though these dollies had their choice of transportation

(hot pink barbie car, sparkly purple horse and so on)

they were not satisfied till they had a HOT AIR BALLOON !

All you need is a balloon, flour and water paste, paper, paints and a tiny basket. Blow up the balloon and dip strips of paper into the paste and apply to balloon. It took a day for each layer to dry and we did a couple of layers. The best part was popping the balloon to reveal our paper mache creation. We added a mod podge layer after painting it to give it a shiny finish. VOILA! Hot air balloon!!
