How to Make a Balloon Dog I. Introduction A. Clowns ­ to some, they're scary. To others, they're hysterical. Regardless, everyone admires a clown (or a person) who can quickly twist a balloon into a dog, a giraffe, a sword, or a flower. B. Today I'm going to show you how to make the simplest of balloon animals ­ the dog. [Show finished product.]It's the simplest of balloon animals, and once you've mastered the basics of twisting the balloon, you can make just about anything. C. Most of what I've learned, I've learned from Internet sites. A few years ago, I taught a class on balloon art to middle school students. D. Listen carefully! With this skill, you'll be the hit of any party. In fact, you may even be able to make some extra cash twisting them up for people's kids. And guys, remember Rule #110 from Wedding Crashers: "Make sure your magic trick and balloon animal skills are not rusty. If the kids love it, the girls will, too." II. Body A. Materials 1. 160Q or 260Q balloons in a variety of colors a. 160Q = 1" in diameter and 60" length b. 260Q = 2" in diameter and 60" length (this is what I have) 2. Balloon hand pump B. Steps 1. Using the hand pump, blow up a 260Q balloon, leaving 4-6" of unblown balloon at the end. 2. Tie a knot at the end of the balloon. 3. Make a twist in the balloon about 2" from the tied end. Do not let go. 4. Make two more twists about 1" apart from each other. Make sure not to let go of the

balloon. 5. Twist the two smaller bubbles together. These will be the ears. (With a little adjustment, you'll see that you've already made your dog's head.) 6. Make three more twists that are about 2" apart. 7. Twist these new sections together. These will be the neck and front legs. 8. Make three more twists, one for the dog's body, and two more that are about 2" apart for its back legs. 9. Fold and twist the two smaller sections together. 10. Twist the legs down and you'll see that you've just made a balloon dog. III. Conclusion A. I have just shown you how to twist a balloon into a dog. B. Once you've learned how to make this basic balloon animal, you can lengthen or shorten the distances between twists and make a mouse [show example] or a giraffe [show example]. It's an inexpensive hobby, and you'll be the hit of any party! C. The next time you're at Hobby Lobby, Target, or Wal-Mart and you walk past the party section, pick up a pack of balloons and a pump. Go home and Google "balloon art" and you'll have hours of fun!
