We have all seen them at carnivals, parades and even other birthday parties. You know, it’s those guys that approach you with those long balloons and miraculously make balloon animals right in front of you. And, if you’re like me, you have even tried to make one of those balloon animals yourself. And, if you’re like me, I don’t even want to describe what it turned out to look like. Let’s just say it didn’t look like any balloon animals I’m familiar with.
Balloon Animals Aren’t As Hard to Make As You Think
A phrase that I often like to use is that “we scour the Internet so you don’t have to”. And for this post that’s exactly what I’ve done here. You see, as I mentioned above, I literally suck at making balloon animals. I really have tried. But that was before I had proper instructions. Once I looked at a couple of balloon animals and how they are assembled, it really didn’t seem that hard. And trust me, if I could follow the instructions and have my balloon animal actually look like a balloon animal, then I’m confident that anybody can do it.
I found a great instruction page for making 10 different balloon animals on About.com. Balloons ranging from giraffes to horses to colorful balloon hats can all be described on this page.
