10 minutes

maker checklist

  • colorful balloon
  • translucent balloon
  • good scissors
  • pen or marker
  • plastic cup
  • fine glitter

instructions

1

cut one or two small circles from the colorful balloon. as it is naturally doubled, do this by cutting semi-circles.

tip!

as you cut, turn both the scissors and the balloon, but in opposite directions. this helps create nice, round circles.

2

nest the clear balloon in the colorful one… stuffing it in with a pen (cap on!) or other tool that won’t tear the balloon.

3

add 1/2 tsp of glitter and fill with water.

4

tie off the balloon and give it a squeeze!

tip!

use a kitchen funnel or small plastic cup that you can squeeze into a spout.
