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. Do not blow the balloon
up all the way... you only need 3/4 of a balloon.
- 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.
- Step 1--Inflate
3 quarters of the balloon.
- Step 2--Start
at the beginning with the knot and twist a 1-inch bubble.
Make sure you hang on to both ends of balloon, otherwise it will untwist.
Twist it around 2 or 3 times. 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--Take
this 1-inch bubble and make a pinch
- Step 4--Make
a 8 inch bubble and twist this into the newly made pinch twist. Look
at the picture. This will be the largest bubble or arch on the crown.
