A little recycling makes a colorful serving piece!

Ages 5-10


One balloon
White Glue
Old comics


Blow up a medium-sized balloon.

Cut the comics into strips (I used old Archie comics that we had in the house).

Put glue around the top half of the balloon and start layering the strips of paper. Because we are making a bowl, you are only gluing the top half of the balloon.

Keep layering the paper until there are six layers on the balloon.

Prop the balloon up to dry. Spray a clear laquer on top of the bowl.

When completely dry, pop the balloon and remove it. Trim the top of the bowl so that it is straight.

Use the bowl as decoration or as a candy dish!
