3. Close jars

Want to close a jar but don’t have a lid? Just inflate a balloon, place it over the opening of the glass and let the air escape, and your jar will be sealed.

4. Confetti in a balloon

The confetti in the transparent balloons is beautiful. However, if you are filling confetti in transparent balloons yourself, you should charge the closed balloon with static electricity with a cloth by rubbing it on the surface of the balloon. This way the confetti spreads inside the balloon and sticks to the inner wall. It’s much better than if the confetti flew through the inside of the balloon and formed a pile.

5. Bubbles in a balloon

This trick is especially popular with children. Put toothpaste in an uninflated balloon and tie it up.

Then place a net around the balloon and squeeze the balloon through the stitches so that bubbles form.

The great thing about this idea is that kids can easily make it on their own!

6. Fire resistant ball

Something to impress the little ones by making a fireproof ball.

Warning : this trick should only be performed by children in the presence of adults!

Pour a little water into a balloon before inflating it. Then hold the balloon over a flame so that the water is at the bottom and the balloon will not burst!

7. Balloon that does not burst

This little trick will also amaze children, because you don’t pop your balloon while puncturing it with a wooden skewer. How? ‘Or’ What ? Just push the skewer into the balloon as slowly as possible, the balloons will only burst if punctured quickly.
