  • Balloon

Set up

Place items inside balloon along with 2-4 drops of liquid watercolor, and then fill the balloon up with water until it is about 6-8 inches in diameter and is shaped more like an orb (sphere) than an egg. Make sure there is no air left in the neck of the balloon before you tie it off. Place the balloon in a small bowl in the freezer and let freeze for 2-3 days.
