::: balloon yo-yo’s
We have found a really simple and fun yo-yo that the children can make themselves (with a little bit of help).
It is particularly good on a hot day!
Fill a balloon up with water. It is better to do it from a tap or hose as it needs a bit of pressure – it doesn’t fill up and become heavy enough if you pour in water out of a jug.
Tie it tightly – This is where you may need to help!
We used some extra thick elastic bands cut to form a long strip for the ‘string’, but a piece of elastic would do the trick too.
Tie that onto the top and there you have it – a balloon yo-yo.
And if it bursts – extra fun!
