Celebrate your kid’s art from a new perspective

If your household is anything like mine you have your kids art hanging on the walls all over your house. Here’s an interactive way for you and your kids to enjoy their art in a new way. Pick a few of your favorite works of art and create a floating art show with helium balloons. Not only will you enjoy creating this project  but you also get to enjoy and celebrate their special works of art.

Supplies

What you’ll need: 1 helium tank (such as the balloon time kit), some balloons, fun tak, thread or ribbon and a few examples of your kids’s best works of art.

Construction

For each piece of art, inflate a balloon and tape the ribbon or thread to the upper corners of the piece, then tether the bottom with a thread and anchor it to the floor with some fun tak.  Now adjust the height of the displayed piece of art to meet the child’s eye level.

Chain a few pieces together to make a wall of art.  You can tape a ribbon or thread between adjacent pieces to keep them from rotating. Now keep going until you run out of helium, balloons or art!

Try a 360 degree spinner

Hanging 3 pieces of art together in a triangle gives a 360 degree walk around view

Take 3 smaller pieces of art and tape them together in a triangle configuration.  Then use several balloons to float the display from the center, allowing the pictures to spin freely.  I used a latex balloon in the center of the triangle to help it to keep it’s shape.

Not only will your kids love constructing the art show with all those balloons, but it also lets the kids and adults enjoy their art in a new way!
