Balloon Bracelet

What you need:

Balloons (any color or size)

Cord Elastic

Scissors

Instructions:

Pick the color pattern you want your bracelet and take the balloons and Cut the balloons into strips. Your might want to experiment to determine which length you like best. i settled on a length of about 2 inches.Take your elastic and measure around the wrist and add about 2-3 inches to give some wiggle room in the bracelet and to allow enough extra elastic to tie off when you are done. Cut the elastic.Tape on end of the elastic to the table and take the other end and thread your balloons Once there are a few balloon pieces on the elastic you will need to start pushing them down to make room for more balloon pieces. When you are happy with the amount of balloons tie a knot and trim the ends and pull one of the balloons over the knot.


Balloon Critters

Things you need:

Balloons
Funnel
Flour (any type)
Pipe cleaners, wool or string for hair.
Craft glue
Eye stickers,wobble eyes,buttons or a marker pen for the eyes

Instructions:

Start by filling your balloon with flour, use a chopstick or pen to help push the flour down the funnel.Once you have filled the balloon tie a knot in the top and use your finger to make an indentation for the mouth and nose. The more you fill it the harder it will be to squish your features into place. Finish off by adding the eyes and some hair to cover up the knot.
