Yesterday the youngest and myself went to the library story time session.  It was crowded as there was a special guest, a balloon modeller.

He valiantly tired to teach the 25 children and various parents how to make a Christmas hat complete with reindeer.  Balloons were popping all around us while we tried to wrestle them into some kind of shape.  The looks of concentration on parents faces as they gave it their all, reluctant to be the last to finish was quite comical.

Throughout the session toddlers were using the balloons to bat each other.  More popping of balloons ensued.

Here is our creation:

We had a lovely time despite the chaos.  It has got me thinking about children’s entertainers for my boys parties. I am sorely tempted to splash out and book one or should I get hubbie a self help balloon modelling book for Christmas… now there is a thought!
