Sculpting a monkey balloon animal isn't as difficult as it looks. You might have watched a balloon sculptor in action and thought that you could never master such a skill, but balloon sculpting is actually easy. You just need to know a few of the basics -- pinching and twisting some "bubbles" and then twist-locking those bubbles together -- and with practice, you'll be able to design a monkey balloon animal.
The balloons used for this project can be purchased at toy stores, discount stores, or magic stores. Be sure to read through all the instructions for the project before you begin. Then, pick up your balloons and have fun!
The first step, of course, is to inflate the balloons. (Hint: Using a pump to inflate balloons is a lot easier and faster than using your own breath.)
Give the balloon a few good stretches before inflating. Then Inflate slowly and steadily to the desired length.
Let a tiny bit of air out of the balloon, so that there is enough balloon valve to tie a knot. Tie a single knot.
Once the knot is tied, gently squeeze the knotted end to release some tension behind the knot. The balloon is now ready to be sculpted.
