The 3rd graders will be making the balloon part by tracing out the shape of the balloon, putting water in small sections and then adding tissue paper on top. After the students add the tissue paper, they need to make sure that it's totally wet. They can also add water on top of the tissue paper, just in case.
The next art time, they remove the tissue paper to reveal the color that has transferred to the paper.
Then, they cut out their balloon and glue it onto a larger sheet of paper. Using a sharpie pen, they add pattern to their balloon, they also add the ropes and basket.
