Kids will learn the fun art of balloon twisting in this hands-on interactive class. This one hour repeatable class ties in with math and science. Students will learn how to operate a balloon hand pump to blow up their balloons, and learn about air pressure. They will see the instructor blow up, twist, and design various balloon creations. The students will then be given step by step instructions and be asked to follow those instructions to twist their own balloon creations. Self expression will be encouraged as students use their own artistic ability to vary the basic designs. This class teaches team building and builds self esteem! Children will get to take home all balloon creations that they make themselves after the class.including dogs, swords, bees, and more! This is a great after school class, spring break class, or summer class! Grades 3-8
