Meimei K just held her 3rd birthday party and by the next day, we were left with a floor of almost-deflated latex balloons.
The girls are very imaginative and they decided that these balloons are their pet dogs and started ‘walking them’ around the house by pulling the string. Since they were not getting sleepy, I decided to try something — make balloon pet dogs.
I cut some leftover felt (from the party) to make dog ears and used permanent markers to draw the faces. I had no time to make the legs though. However, some ideas include spring and folded papers.
So here’s a picture of little k and her new pet dog. This kept her entertained quite a while and she has been ‘walking’ it since she got home from school today 🙂
