Today I attempted to make a 3D hot air balloon and....succeeded! It comes with a toilet paper roll "basket" and all you really need is paper/string! These would be fun to hang all over a classroom or outside on a tree. Make them with your kids...they'll love this craft!
- Printable PDF Template ($1.50 - thanks for your support!)
- 5 colored pieces of paper
- Toilet roll
Start by cutting out 5 hot air balloon shapes with different colored papers. Try to make them as close to the same sizes as possible! Fold them in half and glue each side to another paper to make it 3D.
Cut a little piece of a toilet paper roll off and tape some twine inside it. Glue on some dots or stickers. Tape the top of the pieces of string to the inside of two balloons.
That's it! It looks so cool outside in the wind!
Here's a view from the top of the hot air balloon.
