Balloon Heads

What you need:

  • Large balloons
  • Fine dry dirt
  • Kitchen funnel
  • Spoon
  • Glue on wobble eyes
  • Permanent markers – assorted colours
  • Craft glue

What to do:

  1. Inflate a balloon to stretch the latex, then deflate it again before filling
  2. Insert the kitchen funnel into the neck of the balloon and slowly pour in the fine dry dirt using a spoon. Fill the balloon with as much dirt as you can.
  3. Tie a knot in the neck of the balloon
  4. Mould the balloon to make it into a funny face by pushing your fingers into the balloon
  5. Glue on the wobble eyes and draw on lips, a nose, eyelashes, hair, eyebrows and glasses with the permanent markers to create balloon heads

Safety warnings: Ensure children do not play with dirt that may have been contaminated by animals. Ensure that children do not put dirt or dirty hands in their mouths. Do not use potting mix; it is dangerous as it contains a potentially harmful bacteria. Ensure any cuts are covered. Wash hands afterwards.
