This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Michaels and Goblies as part of the Michaels Makers team.
We just tried the funnest new thing – throwable paintballs! We’ve tried lots of fun outdoor color games, and this is our favorite – they were super fun and easy to use and clean up was surprising easy! You can find Goblies at Michael’s (in my store there’s a big display up front), so go grab a bunch and get ready for some fun! Goblies are throwable washable paintballs your kids will love available ONLY at Michaels!
We used Goblies to make a fun wall art canvas for our game room. It of course turned into a fun paintball and paint squirt-gun war!

Paintball Canvas Craft Project
You’ll need: (I found everything at Michael’s)
Large Canvas of desired size
It worked best to set up the canvas, that way when the paintballs break the paint will run down the canvas and create art. My kiddos LOVED the paintballs – they were soft, easy to throw, and burst easily onto their targets.
They are stored in liquid in the bag to protect them from bursting too early:
Ready Aim Fire! Throw them every which way at the canvas and have fun with it.
Some of the paintball casings will be left on the canvas (as shown below) – you’ll just want to pull those off while the paint is still wet so they don’t stick.
Paint Gun Spray
There are also fun squirt guns that can be filled with Goblies Paint – easy enough to fill that my kids could fill their own, love that!
They had a blast battling one another!
Paintball Clean Up
I was pleasantly surprised with how easily everything cleaned up! The squirt guns rinsed off easily. The colors almost all came out of the white tees. Everything was washable! Go grab yourself some Goblies and have some fun!
