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 6 inches of the 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--Blow
up the 6 inches.
- Step 2--Start
at the beginning with the knot and twist a 3 to 4-inch bubble or 3 or
4 fingers wide. 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--While
holding on to the twisted balloon, make another bubble the same size.
This will be the one ear. Do not let go.
- Step 4--Make
another balloon bubble the same size. This is the other ear. Look at
- Step 5--Twist
balloon joints A & B together. Twisting 2 or 4 times all the way
around. The balloon will not break, and they will stay together.
yours looks like this, very good; if not, try it again. Practice
Making the Mouse Fly
Gently hold the mouse in
one hand around the body. With the other hand pull down on the mouse
tail, then let go. The mouse should fly up into the air.
Mouse Trouble? Mouse not
flying? Make sure you are not hanging on too tightly to the mouse.
Plus make sure you pull his tail to make him fly.
