Gillian, loves taking the long balloons and putting a special twist on them. One great thing about the long Balloons is they give children a chance to use their imagination. Gillian has made some pretty crazy things. Such as a metal detector, and fun head gear. I tend to get nervous when she is twisting the balloons, because she never takes her time and I am worried it will pop and freak me out, because I am never expecting it.
One thing I love most about making Balloon Animals at birthday parties, is they’re always a big hit. I mean what kid doesn’t like a dog made from a Balloon, and what kid doesn’t like twisting the balloons.
With a little search on the internet, you can find how to make pretty much all the cool animals that the kids love. The basic Balloon animal shape is the dog, not only is it popular, but it is also super easy to make. :)
Or if you are wanting to make a giraffe all you need to do is adjust the length of the segments on the dog. Remember there is no wrong way to make balloon animals. Another fun thing you can do is add faces with sharpie markers, just remember to have fun and use your imagination.
You can purchase How to Blow Up Animals: A Beginner’s Guide to Fun With Balloons from Amazon. This book will not only show you how to make all kinds of different balloon animals. It will also give you hours of fun with your kids.
Please remember balloons are a choking hazard so keep away from children that put things in their mouths.
