My students know that I love to travel around the world making balloons for people I meet. Here’s me in action in Dubrovnik, Croatia last summer:
Last week, I taught my students to be balloon twisters themselves! It was a short lesson, but on Valentine’s Day, we put their skills to the test. We visited a local senior center to volunteer and bring some joy to the seniors’ day. As you can see, it was a little chaotic, in the best possible way:
Even as beginner twisters, the students brought forth many smiles with their creations (and yes, I made some balloons also).
The students made some new friends…
…and learned that you’re never too old to play with balloons!
They might be ready for their Balloon Twisting 102 class pretty soon!
