Instructions

  1. 1

    Inflate the balloon, leaving around an inch uninflated at the end.

  2. 2

    Tie the balloon at the end you inflated it and twist a small bubble around one inch in size at the tied end.

  3. 3

    Grab the balloon about five inches from the tied end, fold it over and tie a loop just below the bubble you made in Step 2.

  4. 4

    Grab the balloon just above the loop and make a twist just above where your hand is gripping the balloon. This will form the sword's handle.

  5. 5

    Take the top end of the balloon, fold it back, thread it through the loop and pull it through. Your balloon sword is complete.

Tips and warnings

  • Stretch the balloon before use to ensure that it inflates fully.
  • Use modelling balloons. Normal balloons will burst when you twist them.
