Hot Air Balloon Easy Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a good project to use for children who are practicing their scissor skills. The hot air balloon is a large shape with gentle curves -- an easy shape for cutting.

It's easy to make your own colored rice, colored macaroni or other pasta shapes (instructions are included) and you can store it indefinitely once you've made it. I find the macaroni less messy for the kids to use than rice is. Alternatively you can use dried cereal like fruit loops or cheerios.



I'm a Little Balloon (tune of I'm a Little Teapot)

I'm a little balloon - look at me!
oh what color can I be?

If you said that I was
colored _______ (a color that you used to decorate your balloon)
then stand right up and shout _______ ! (something that rhymes with the color - it can be silly)

so, for example, if you used blue the last two verse might be:

If you said that I was
colored blue
then stand right up and shout YAHOO !


Here are some color rhyming words to start you off:

blue - yahoo!

red - Yay, Fred!

yellow - hey, hello!

grey - hurray!

green - and scream!

purple - Not Flurple!
