All of my boys will be celebrating their birthdays very soon. N and M have grand party plans, involving cake (the chocolate kind of course), games and balloons. We had a balloon wall at their last birthday party. This year, their grand party plans involve lots and lots of balloons. Mr E is also mad about balloons. He has the most gorgeous sad puppy dog face when a balloon deflates or pops.
With all the balloon talk happening at our home, it seems fitting to share some fun ways to play with balloons, because play matters, and from what I have seen (and heard), kids simply love balloons. I’ve also put together a list of 12 fun balloon activities for children. Of course, please be cautious about balloons being a choking hazard and use parental supervision accordingly.
