Ice Balloons for Kids

I am sure I have your brain thinking, Ice Balloons?

What are you talking about?

Let say it’s a great time for the kids.  And it has some learning involved as well.

Ice Balloons Supplies are SUPER easy.

Water (I used water balloons because that’s what I had, but I do plan on getting the big ones)


Food coloring if you would like


That is it.  You might be now starting to think about where this is going.  I bet you are right too.

Start by filling the balloons with water.  I found it easiest to just fill at the faucet.

You can add food coloring right into the balloon before you fill it.  You can see the balloons I made below.  Some you can tell the fool coloring was added.

Place the balloons outside, when it’s freezing.  If you live where it doesn’t freeze you can do the freezer.

Wait at minimum 24 hours.  When frozen pull off the balloon, and you have Ice balloons.  Make sure to throw the balloons away.

I placed them outside around our deck.  My kids are wanting to do more.
