Balloons are always a good idea, but turn them into little buddies and you’ve got some serious entertainment value. To make one, blow up a balloon, knot the end and tie a string to it. Next, have the kids cut feet from construction paper and tape them to the bottom of the balloon. Continue adding detail using construction paper and other craft supplies. To keep the project going, have the kids name their buddies, act out a play or make a whole family!
