Easy to make Hot air balloon with #Bostikbloggers

Welcome back to our monthly easy at home craft with #Bostikbloggers to check out our previous craft posts click here.

This month our theme is flying, for a long time Erin and I thought about what we were going to make and she decided she would like a hot air balloon to play with and put all of her little characters in, so that’s what we did.

The Materials you will need are-

1 cup/egg cup/ something cup shaped

Lollypop sticks painted (enough to go around the cup)

A Balloon


A circle of paper or a doily

Feathers to decorate


Glue (we use Bostik)

How to Make the Hot Air balloon-


  • Firstly glue the painted lollypop sticks to the outside of the cup


  • Next blow up the balloon and attach the middle part of the string to the tied end of the balloon.
  • Attach the other end of the string to the cup both sides so the balloon holds the cup
  • Decorate the top of the balloon with feathers
  • Poke a hole through the paper or doily thread and tie some string one side.
  • Glue the paper (knot down) on the top of the balloon
  • Suspend the balloon from the ceiling or light shade by tying the string.
  • Make a face on the balloon and play!
