How to Make the Best Balloons for a Child's Party

Learn how to make the best balloon animals for a child's party from magician Jonas Cain in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. This is a tough one.. Hmm.. a lot of kids like different things and all the kids parties is well they are very much the same; they can all be very different. A good assumption though is that kids are kids and balloons are balloons. So kids are going to be wild and crazy; balloons are going to pop. Aaa, so specially if there are a lot of kids, you give them a balloon, as soon as you give it to them they throw it on the floor and stomp on it. [Laughs] and it pops out. It is a good bet that you will have to remake balloons all over and over again, if you are a nice guy. [Laughs] Of course you will. So so its a good idea in those scenarios to make a basic balloon so that's it easier to make. You don't want to make a bicycle, be much more complicated to make over and over again. But that being said, some balloons are more fun than others. Somethings like the swan. The swan, its a very visual balloon, the process of making it. Certain balloons you can make that just look neater than other ones, something like the horse. A lot of girls like the horses and a lot of boys like the tiger. So its very much dependent of what's going on at the party, you can figure out what balloon is going to work best at that, that situation.
