Here are some other simple rules to follow in order to ensure that your balloon-making experience is safe and fun:
• Store your balloons in a cool, dry place away from the sun. They will last longer.
• Do not chew on balloons or place balloons in your mouth!
• Do not blow into a balloon that another person has already been blowing. You can pick up some nasty germs that way.
• When you are twisting a balloon, keep the balloon far away from your face to avoid any accidents.
• When you are doing the balloon-puff technique, do not suck on the balloon to create the puff. You can choke on the balloon.
• Do not use helium to inflate your balloons.
• Do not put any special powders or other materials inside the balloons.
• Do not use regular round balloons to make your creations. These balloons are not meant for twisting and turning.
• Do not use alcohol-based felt markers to draw on your balloons. These markers will eat through the balloon.
• Make sure you pick up all burst balloon pieces. Small children and animals might swallow them.
• Tell an adult immediately if you have hurt yourself or a friend in any way!
