Balloon modeling fun this morning

Whilst oh was off indulging his passion for fishing this morning (and he brought the dog back 3 gutted mackerel)  the kids and I decided we would have some fun with balloon modelling.

I think the best bit for Bob was having me point them in his direction and they got nearer and nearer to him as we blew them up, and would dissolve into fits of giggles when ever they went bang.

He could not quite grasp the concept of needing 3 hands to twist and turn and twist again and then wrap two bit round each other to get them to stay together, I found it difficult let alone at 5.

Fifi tried to follow some of the instructions on the book that came with them, and then made up her own designs as we went along.

It passed away an hour and here is our creative fun and the stunning results.

They were off to Strathclyde Country Park this afternoon to meet up with friends.

  2. Looks like you really had a great afternoon and lots of fun; you make it sound easier than it is I think.
