Balloon Bracelet Craft
This Balloon Bracelet craft is one that both girls and boys enjoy making. The materials are inexpensive and easy to find.
Balloons, the kind you use for making balloon animals
1/4 inch flat elastic
Cut elastic large enough for a comfortable bracelet plus enough length to tie off. You can always cut off excess elastic when you are finished.
Cut the balloons up into small pieces approximately one inch in length. Make sure both ends are open.
Feed a piece of balloon onto the flat elastic and scrunch down leaving enough room at the end to tie off. Keep adding elastic pieces until the elastic is covered but enough room is left to tie off the bracelet.
It may take a little patience to open the balloon ends so you can slip the elastic through, but the kids love the end result.
