Ice Water Balloons

Who Doesn't Love Water Balloons?
I love this picture!
They had such a fun time helping me fill up water balloons.

We filled lots of them up with water and air.
Then we threw some in the freezer too.
They actually loved throwing the frozen water balloons,
and trying to break them.

We talked about the difference in air, water, and ice.
We held the balloons and felt how they were different.
They squoze the "air" balloon until it was totally deflated.
Miss Sassy looks a little deflated too!

I held them off long enough!
We then threw our water balloons!
I think our neighbor is going to be a baseball player!
He had a great arm!

Then, because I can't go a whole week without art...
I brought out the balloons full of paint. :)
I was going for more of a Jackson Pollock feel,
But it was still really fun.
(Next time I'll fill them with sidewalk chalk paint.)
P.S. I filled the paint water balloons with a water squirter from All a Dollar.
