Artful Friday: Shaping Rocket Balloons~ A Video How-To Part 1 ~ by My Son and Guest Post-er

Hi, I'm Timmy, my Mommy's guest poster.

I am honoring Mrs Girone's request in coming back. 
She liked my post on Pope Benedict XVI 
and requested that I write again on my Mom's blog.
So, here I am and I'll be showing
you how to make balloon shapes.

Here are some of my creations:

 ~poodle~


~cobra~

~dog~

 ~Republican Elephant ~
~and Democratic Donkey~

I have to keep them together.
 It's the only way they're happy...
when they're arguing about welfare.



~sword~


Now, I'm going to provide you with a  video presentation on how to make
each of the balloon shapes!

First, a special thanks to  Video Jug who gave me a start on making the shapes.
I'll be starting out easy today and  in the Friday posts  to come, 
I'll  explain balloon shapes that are a bit harder.

~How to make a sword~



I hope you enjoyed the explanation. 
Maybe your kids will  try to make  their own swords now.
I'm sure you love when they have screaming duels all over the house.
Please come back next  Friday for part 2 of my balloon crafting series. 

Thank you for visiting my Mom's blog today.
She would like me to include a list of previous Artful Friday post,
 in case you are interested in those:
