Updated on January 30, 2012

Do you like to throw snowballs and water balloons at people? I know I like to throw water balloons but I can't throw snowballs because there is never any snow in Texas! So this craft is a great alternative to snowballs, the recipe is easy and simple and your kids will enjoy making them and throwing them at you! If you are interested in this fun easy and entertaining project keep reading for ingredients and directions. Have fun making these with your children, my nieces and nephews love throwing them at me, we always have so much fun making these, I hope you will too!

Things you will need ♥

A bunch of balloons

Different colors of food coloring

Plastic baggies

(See how easy this craft is you only need three things! How easy and fun is that!)

How to make your ice balloons:

First you will need to put a few drops of food coloring into your balloons. (Make sure there isn't any holes in the balloon or you will have a colorful mess!). After that you will want to fill up your balloons with water and tie them tight! Gently shake the balloons without popping. Once that is done, you will want to put your colored balloons into baggies and place them in the freezer until mushy but firm enough that it won't fall apart. After your balloons are frozen you will want to take them out of the baggies and cut off the balloon so all you have is colorful ice! Your ice balloons are ready to throw, make sure to set some ground rules before letting your kids throw these at everyone. Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed this craft:)

      This is a really good idea, even for a kids birthday or something. I do have one question. Do you freeze them until they are completely hard?? Cause that would hurt throwing a solid ice rock at someone lol..

      Thanks for sharing

      Oh ok.. I mean a solid ice cube balloon would be great to through at my husband but not the kids lol. Definitely going to try this in the summer time.. Also I might try this as ice for our cooler during the summer too.

      Being from Canada, snow is not a problem obviously. But I like this idea, I like the bright colors as well....and we don't have snow all year round ;-)

      You are so lucky to have snow! I live in Texas and we get it one day out of the year and it isn't even the real kind of snow you get to experience! So these are great if you don't get snow but also fun to make anyway. :)
