Cutting out several coloured tissue paper squares and gluing them onto the template creates a fun patchwork balloon!

This zig zag balloon my little one made with paints just looks amazing! Using markers works perfectly too.

How about decorating the balloon with rows of coloured buttons – we think this looks fab and it doubles up as a fun colour sorting activity too!
