We made these a while back for family night. The kids loved it! It was messy and sticky, which was probably why it was a big hit with them. I chose to use orange paper because after all the mess of making them I really didn’t want to break out the paint. We blew up some balloons and covered them in the paper that had been dipped in watered down Elmer’s glue. The hardest part was waiting for them to dry! I ( uh, I mean my kids. . . ) don’t have a whole lot of patience. Some green paper leaves and pipe cleaner curly things finished them off. Every time my boys walk by them they comment on how fun it was.
