Decking out the front yard for Halloween, my husband enjoys drawing some spooky balloons to hang from trees. He also let’s the grands join in and either take their balloons home or hang them from our trees. To make these, you’ll need:
- large white balloons
- permanent markers
- white large garbage bags
Blow up the balloon and tie a knot in the end . (Kiddos may need some assistance with this.)
Let your creativity lead you, but still keep an eye out for little ones who may not know the meaning of “permanent marker.”
My husband likes to draw a face or design on both sides of the balloon, since the balloons twist in the wind. Once the balloon is done, tie the string on the balloon knot.
Next comes the tricky part. With the scissors carefully slit one side of the large white trash bag. At the opposite end of the slit, cut a small hole for the string. Thread the string through the hole so the bag flows around the balloon. Remove bag’s drawstring.
