Balloon People

Here's a fun project idea that good for one child or a group at day camp or a party.

These balloon people are fun to make.  You can use different colored balloons to create anything from a group of animals, to a group of kids.  Each child could pick their favorite color and then make themselves.  

If there's just one child, he or she could make a bunch of characters and create a story or skit for them.  They're fairly easy to move a around and should stand by themselves (with coins on their feet for weight). kids craft to make balloon person

This project is easy to pack if you are traveling.  It's just a bit of paper, markers, balloons and some stickers.  Everything is flat and could fit in almost anywhere.

You can also work with specific colors to match a holiday or event.  Use red, white and blue for the 4th of July, orange and black for Halloween, or pink and red for Valentine's Day.

It would be great to see some pictures of the balloon people you and your children create.  Send them in and we'll share your ideas or creations with other visitors.
