Recently at a family goods consignment sale, a balloon artist made a teddy bear for my son. It took him a few tries as a couple balloons popped as he tried to make the complicated bends and turns, but the finished balloon sculpture was amazing. Frankly I am surprised that any of the balloons survive to make a sculpture with all of the twisting and bending they go though. I can’t even blow those thin balloons up, let along make animals out of them.
Balloon sculpting reminds me of origami, but instead of folding paper, the person is folding a balloon which could pop at any moment. The concept is simple and you can find instructions for making basic balloon animals online , but to get really good at making the sculptures takes a lot of practice and a bit of luck.
A balloon artist is definitely a skilled craftsman and many of them are talented entertainers as well. Kids love watching creatures take shape out of the balloons and the finished creations make great party favors. To add a little extra fun to a party, get a balloon artist who is dressed up in costume as a favorite character or a clown. Balloon artists are wonderful for birthday parties and all sorts of events, especially events with kids involved.
If you are planning a large warm weather event, like a fair or a concert, selling ice cream bars is a no brainer. When people get hot, they are going to want to cool off, plus ice cream is a delicious treat. People even buy ice cream when the weather is cold (or else all the ice cream shops would close for the winter).
So what kind of treats can you put into an ice cream cart? Pretty much any kind of frozen ice cream bar or popsicle will work. Check with bulk grocery stores such as Costco or Cash ‘n Carry to see what is available locally and watch for sales at local grocery stores. Sometimes grocery stores will have sales on ice cream bars that make them even cheaper than the bulk stores.

Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to add a lot of color to a room for a party? Decorate it with Helium filled balloons! Balloons provide festive decoration for all sorts of events, plus kids love to play with them, and they are cheap enough to send home as party favors. Just be sure to tie a ribbon and a weight to the end of the balloons so they don’t get away outside. Kids get pretty upset when they lose their balloon.
Balloons come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You can purchase bags of latex balloons in single colors, multi colors, with different images on them, or in various shapes at stores such as party stores and dollar stores. Mylar balloons can also be filled with helium. Most balloons are pretty inexpensive, but if you want the store to fill them with helium, the price can add up when you are getting a bunch. A more affordable option may be to rent a helium tank and fill the balloons yourself.
A word of warning about helium tanks. The tanks are not toys. Never, ever inhale helium from the tanks. Doing so can have fatal consequences.
Once you have filled the balloons with helium, tie ribbons or strings to the bottom. You can let the balloons float to the ceiling, tie weights to the base, or tape or tie them to walls and furniture.
