How to make balloon animals – easy craft for kids

Over the school holidays we had more fun staying home and crafting than the last holidays where we went out constantly. One of the activities that my kids and those I looked after loved was balloon animals, not the ones you twist and tie like clowns do, but our own creations of texta, paper and tape.

What you need:
Permanent markers

It’s pretty simple and my main job was to blow up the balloons and hold them while the kids stuck things everywhere.

Blow up the balloons to the size required. Tape or tie them together and decorate!

We made ants

Other ideas would be spiders, caterpillars, dragonflies, bunch of grapes or ice creams. It’s fun to see what the kids will come up with on their own.
