Squishy Balloon Monsters

Download Activity Guide

Don’t let these balloon monsters fool you with their pointy teeth and wiggle eyes - inside they’re soft and squishy! Let your imagination run wild creating these friendly folk. A great rainy day activity. 

  • Step 1Using a small funnel, fill up your balloons with sand.
  • Once the sand reaches the top of the balloon, push and squish it down into the base of the balloon to allow more sand to be added. This creates a more solid base for the balloon monster to be sat up.
  • Step 3Once the balloons are full of sand, tie a knot in the end of each.
  • Step 4Cut out various shapes from the adhesive foam and stick them onto the balloons to create weird and wacky faces. Add wiggle eyes with glue.
  • Step 5Create a whole squishy monster family!
