How to Bend Balloons 25 Brilliant Ways to Bend, Fold and Twist Balloons! by Nick Huckleberry Beak

25 brilliant ways to bend, fold and twist balloons! Amazing ideas for blow-up creations such as a parrot on a perch, an acrobatic aircraft, a teddy bear, a twirly hat, a bunch of tulips, and even a pair of handcuffs! It includes instructions on how to inflate, tie and decorate your balloons. It is ideal for 8- to 12-year-olds, with basic twists for beginners, and more sophisticated projects for older kids. It features simple stage-by-stage guidance and more than 200 photographs show you what to do every step of the way. Twist, twist, bend, bend, stretch, twist...pop! No, it's not a new dance, nor a new breakfast cereal. It's you after you have read this book and caught the balloon-bending bug. With this brilliant book you will be able to create a whole world of furless dogs, hairless monkeys, rubbery rabbits, wibbly hats and wobbly houses. Confused? Well, you need not be for very much longer. Once you have grasped the basic techniques, which are clearly explained at the beginning of this volume, you will start making models for fun, then for your family and friends. Finally you will be making them at parties, while waiting for a bus, or even at school (not that we encourage that kind of conduct, you understand). Before you know it, you won't just have become mad, you will have become...a balloonatic! Well, what are you waiting for? Grab a bag of balloons and let your imagination take over...
