    I have been wanting to do a project where instead of water balloons I wanted to do paint balloons and take pictures. I was worried about using paint and now I see this I am curious if this could be a sager alternative.

  8. Just tried this with my 3 year old helping and it worked great; didn’t have corn syrup so we subbed in maple, and we had coloured mnis and just added additional colour to make it brighter. Very fun idea….might even be possible to duplicate at camp over a campfire with Girl Guides (would just have to store it away because who needs coons raiding camp to eat paint…could you imagine?!)
