Balloon Chit Chat / Balloon games/team building
« on: July 29, 2013, 12:39:05 PM »
Hi all, I've been booked to work in a summer school on Thursday and have just had a request from the client to see if it would be possible to do a few games/team building exercises with the kids. They're all age 10/11 and I will have a 45 minute session with a group of 20, then a 2nd session with a different group.

Does anyone have any great games that they know would work with this kind of age group? I think she was thinking along the lines of me showing them how to make something that looks good and maybe splitting them into teams to get each team to recreate it, I suppose a bit like the Generation Game.

I was thinking of maybe spending half an hour showing them a few different flower designs and then seeing which group could make the most/biggest bouquet in the final 15 mins.

or maybe doing something wearable??

Any ideas would be very much welcomed! Thanks, Lisa

Just had a call from someone who runs the local Conservative Club and they've asked for a display model for tomorrow! It's the clubs 120th birthday and they've having decor balloons, plus want a special sculpture creating.

They're not specific on the brief, but just want it to relay that they are a pub/social environment.

I have thought of a model of a bar, with maybe a barmaid behind and someone propping the bar up, but other than that I'm a bit stuck. Any genius ideas out there?

I'm going to have to do it this evening as I'm working all day tomorrow, hence the urgency :)

thanks in advance!

Balloon Tutorial & Help / circus themed balloons

Does anyone have any ideas of quick  linework style circus-themed balloons that would entertain adults?

I have thought of clown head bracelets and that's about as far as I've got :D. I've only just had confirmation of the gig though and it is late so I'll get my thinking cap on tomorrow.

They need to be quick designs though . . .

Thanks, Lisa

I was asked to do a special 50th balloon delivery last week and as the fella was a fellow big Tour De France fan, I took my opportunity to make a Bradley Wiggins for him.

I was asked for a special delivery this week of a Moshi Monster - Poppet in particular.

I don't know Moshi Monsters so had to Google Poppet, and this is what I came up with.

Just came across a couple of youtube videos that made me smile.

Don't know if they've been posted before but I couldn't find any reference to them.

The first is a full balloon music video and the 2nd is a 100 year old balloon twister (Ralph Dewey's mum!!) Love them! ... playnext=1 ... _6WqQfv4DJ

I was asked to do another Rapunzel design for a birthday girl tomorrow, so thought I'd try the wheat weave for her hair. I've never done it before so it's not as neat as I'd like, but think it works well in this instance!

Tomorrow's birthday girl requested a Minnie Mouse balloon.

Do you think she'll like it???   :lol:  :lol:

I did ask her mum if she'd be alright with a 5ft version before I made it!  :twisted:

(Boys on there just for sizing!)

I was asked for an Angry Birds balloon today - did these.

The first one was an 11" round for size impact, the second one I made as a quick, on the job design, along with the pig as part of a game - the kids had loads of fun trying to get the pig by firing the Angry Bird from the catapult!
