Balloon animals: swan
Balloon animals are a great party game or magic trick for kids to learn. This easy swan balloon animal is a good one to start with.
What you need:
- 1 x white balloon fully inflated
- a black marker pen
Fully inflate your white balloon leaving just a short end uninflated.
Create two bubbles, each about 35cm long and loop them (see video).
Once you have them looped, end to end, to form a circle, twist the ends together to form two large loops and a long straight portion of balloon (see video).
Tuck one loop inside the other, arranging the loops carefully to create the swan's body with the wings sticking up (see video).
Create the elegant curved neck of the swan by bending the neck down and holding it there for about 20 seconds until it stays curved.
Draw eyes on your swan.
