I Heart Faces – Balloon Theme

Are you ready to head to the dark side?


I swear, I’m not going over the edge.


Nor is my son. :)


I just couldn’t think of anything for the balloon theme…


My son came home with a science experiment he had done at school the other day that involved baking soda, vinegar, a bottle and a balloon.  We were going to do that, but my kitchen is too messy for pictures.  (Like that’s out of the ordinary.)


After buying all sorts of balloons at Dollar General this evening, I came up with the bright idea to blow up three balloons, put a face on each, and then have the kids try to mimic the faces.  Only problem…my kids don’t follow directions.  I think I need a couple more years to put that idea into action.


Finally, I had Nathan pick which face he wanted. He chose the angry face.  I tried to get him to make his own angry face to match.  Since we have such a troubled balloon in the picture, I figured I’d go all lugubrious on y’all with my dark, gloomy editing.  (Yep, I’m throwing those 7th grade vocabulary words in the mix too!)


Don’t cry.  The balloon is now taking anger management courses.  (His anger should be “deflated” soon.)
