  1. Start by using the Balloon Time Helium Tank to inflate the white balloons. Fill a few extra just in case one pops. Note: typical latex balloon float time is 5-7 hours. If you’re preparing the balloons the night before, use Hi-Float, found online and in party stores.
  2. Tie the balloons with string, and tape them to the table (approximately 1 ½ feet above the top of the table).
  3. Give each of your artists a paint brush and a paint tray with the acrylic paint.
  4. Have the kids paint the balloons. (Adult supervision is advised for children under 8. If a balloon pops, discard broken pieces immediately.)
  5. If they have a difficult time painting the balloons by themselves, have them pair up with a friend or parent, and take turns holding each other’s balloon.

These balloons are a lot of fun for your guests to take home at the end of the party. Just tie a simple favor box onto the bottom as a balloon weight, and send each guest home with their own balloon masterpiece!
