Make a cute hot air balloon craft with your kids.!

With a name like Dorothy, you can bet our kid is into crafts that have anything to do with The Wizard of Oz.  So, I wasn’t too surprised when Dot was gung-ho to try this hot air balloon craft.  It uses some recycled materials and would make an awesome party decoration.

What you need to make a hot air balloon craft:

  • Balloon
  • String/Ribbon
  • Fruit basket (you can also use the bottom of a small milk carton)
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Start by blowing up your balloon.

We left a little extra hanging off the end to make “fancy” tassels.

Tape the other ends to your balloon.
