Inflate the balloon, leaving 8 inches (20 cm) free at the tail. Do a 1-inch (2.5-cm) tulip twist at the mouth end of the balloon. Twist a small bubble and hold it. Then twist five bubbles—medium, small, medium, small, medium— and twist lock the first and last bubbles together to form a circle.

2 Push the tulip bubble through the circle of bubbles.

3 Ear twist the small bubble on each side of the head. The head is now complete.

5 For the body, make two large bubbles.

Twist lock them together. Then make a third large bubble and push it through the two bubbles you just twist locked together. Rotate the body so that the third bubble is on top. This rotation locks the third bubble in place.

Make two medium bubbles for the back legs. Twist lock them together

7Make a small bubble and ear twist it. Use a pin to pop the end of the balloon. This gives you the pig's tail. If you wish, you can tie off this end to form a curl.

<*t Inflate a balloon, leaving 6 inches (16 3 cm) free at the end. Create four small bubbles: one for the chin, one for the side of the mouth, one for the other side of the mouth, and one for the nose. Twist lock the second and third bubbles together. Then push the fourth bubble through them.

2 Make a small bubble for the back of the head. Then make five bubbles for the ring of the head—medium, small, small-to-medium size, small, and medium. Twist lock the two medium bubbles together.

3Take the knot at the mouth of the balloon. Pull it and the first four bubbles through the circle of bubbles. Then wrap the knot around the last joint of the balloon. The cat's nose and mouth are now in place.

Optional: Draw a face on the balloon using a felt pen with non-alcoholic ink, such as a Sharpie®.
