Updated on February 16, 2015

1. Balloon Messages

What You Need:

  • Balloon (without any design on it)
  • Writing Utensil


  1. Blow up a balloon to its fullest.
  2. Write the message on the balloon.
  3. Then give instructions to whoever you give the balloon to blow it up.

and TADA!

2. Balloon Tennis Kit

What you need:

  • Paper plates
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Balloons
  • Tape


  1. Tape a Popsicle stick to the back of a paper plate so that the paper plate has a handle. Do this to as many paper plates as needed for each player.
  2. Blow up the balloons to use them as your playing balls.

How to play:

Set up by:

  • Finding two walls to play in between
  • Place tape from one wall to another (you can be the judge to how high; remember this will be your net so you can adjust it however you please)
  • Split into two teams with one team on either side of the tape

Play by:

  • Overhand serving a balloon over the tape line at the beginning of the game
  • The teams each return the balloon with the paddle and try to get the other team to let the balloon hit the ground on their side (just like volleyball)
  • When a team lets the balloon drop, the other team gets a point
  • Play to whatever amount of points you wish and the first team to get that many points wins!

3. Balloon Flower Vase

What you need:

  • Balloons
  • Small glasses
  • Scissors
  • Flowers


  1. Stretch out the balloon by pulling it and blowing it up
  2. Cut off one inch of the neck of the balloon
  3. Put the cup in the the balloon and stretch the balloon until there is only a small hole in the opening of the cup. (see picture to find a visual for it)
  4. Pour water into the cup through the hole and put a few flowers into the hole

And there you have it, a colorful new decoration to brighten up your home!

4. Tulle Balloons

What you need:

  • Pastel balloons
  • Light colored tulle
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Flowers (optional)


  1. Cut whatever lengths of tulle you believe is needed to wrap around the balloon and tie where the balloon ties off
  2. For some extra pizzazz, you could tie a ribbon around the tie of the balloon after putting the tulle around the balloon
  3. In light of this pizzazz, we could add a little bit more pizzazz into that with fake flowers. We could add strung flowers to the tie of the balloon.

5. Balloon Ice Marbles

What you need:

  • Mini balloons
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Freezer


  1. Fill balloons with water
  2. Put a few drops of food coloring into a balloon and mix food coloring into water so that all the water is one color
  3. Freeze the balloon in the freezer
  4. After the balloon is fully frozen, cut the balloon off the ice.

And there you have it! Colored ice marbles!
