Magical Balloon-dude Dale

Caution:  Balloons are fun toys, but can be dangerous like all toys...PLEASE make sure small children do not chew balloons or have access to broken bits. We would like all our kids to grow healthy and happy. I ask you to be responsible like professional balloonist. Adult supervision is recommended.

The first trick to making a balloon animal is to blow up the balloon. This is hard. You can buy a hand pump or use a football pump to help blow up the balloons. 
Carefully tie the balloon. When twisting a balloon, always start at the end with the knot. Do not worry, it will not break if you twist it, but you must hold on to both ends of the balloon. Otherwise, the balloon will untwist. The balloon will not stay twisted by itself. You have to twist the balloon together.

Baseball Cap

Step 1--Blow up one balloon 3 quarters.
Step 2--Start at the beginning with the knot and measure 6" to 6 1/2" and make a twist. Take the nozzle of the balloon and twist them together.  Make sure you hang on to both ends of balloon, otherwise it will untwist.  Do not worry; it will not break. Why didn't it break? There is space at the end of the balloon for the extra air. That is why we only blow the balloon up half way.

Step 3--Make another loop the same size and twist into the other loop.
If yours looks like this, very good; if not, try it again. Practice makes perfect.
Step 4--Take a second balloon and blow it up to its full length.
Step 5--Slip the ends of the new balloon through the loops of the first balloon.  Should look like the picture.

Step 6--Twist " bubble on each end of the balloon and then twist these bubbles together


You have just made a baseball cap!
