I already got you prepped with your game day activities and now it’s time to prep your decor! How about some football inspired balloons, folks? I have three quick and crazy easy ways to spice up your balloon game for the ‘Bowl! All with just a white paint pen! Let’s do it.
Balloon Time Helium Tank
White Paint Marker or Chalk Marker
Inflate your latex balloons with helium. Use your white paint pen to:
1. Draw X’s, O’s and arrows to create your own football plays on balloons!
2. Draw phrases, cheers, numbers or your favorite player’s name on the balloons!
3. Draw a long rectangle and several small ones overlapping it to turn balloons into (colorful!) footballs!
For all of these, I recommend drawing what you want and letting it dry. Then, go back over it to brighten up the white with another layer.
And here are a few examples of why I am neither a football player or a cheerleader…
