Up, up and away! This is a fun activity to make your own paper batik hot air balloon picture. It's great for younger kids as no hot wax is required to make the batik effect. Hang your finished picture on the wall or stick to a window with a curl of sticky tape to brighten up any room.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

1 sheet sugar (construction) paper
Black paint
Crayons
Leather or twine for ropes
Scrap of material for basket (we used hessian)

The crumpling makes cracks in the wax


Make up a wash in a pot using a squirt of black paint and a little water. Paint the black wash over the crumpled paper
The crumpling makes cracks in the wax and the black paint fills the cracks giving a batik effect.

Cut a square of material to make a basket. We used a scrap of hessian as it had a nice woven effect. You could also colour a piece of paper brown or cut a brown square from a magazine
