Recycled Craft: Hot Air Balloon
Make a cute hot air balloon craft with your kids.!
With a name like Dorothy, you can bet our kid is into crafts that have anything to do with The Wizard of Oz. So, I wasn’t too surprised when Dot was gung-ho to try this hot air balloon craft. It uses some recycled materials and would make an awesome party decoration.
What you need to make a hot air balloon craft:
- Fruit basket (you can also use the bottom of a small milk carton)
Just a few items can be transformed into a hot air balloon for your kid.
Start by blowing up your balloon.
Cut your string or ribbon into four pieces, about 24" long each.
Tie one end of each string to a corner of your basket (or tape them to your milk carton).
We left a little extra hanging off the end to make “fancy” tassels.
Tape the other ends to your balloon.
Ta-da! You have a hot air balloon craft in less than five minutes!
