Here's a childrens' craft kit to create a HOT AIR BALLOON. It can be made without the use of scissors, glue or paint by children 5+ with adult assistance. This is not a toddler craft. While the assembly looks complicated, it is really quite simple, but does require some manual dexterity. It will stand on it's own (about 8" tall), but is best hung on a piece of fishline so it appears to float in the air. A great unusual craft for boys. The seed pot bucket is a great place to hide a treat or small toy when used as a party craft or favor. The patterns on the balloon vary.
I always include directions ,a suggestion for a themed book to read as well a coloring page.
I try to design unusual and yet simple crafts that will engage your child and leave them with a sense of pride and accompishment.
