How to Make Hot Air Balloon Craft for Kids

Hot Air balloons are a different way to explore the skies and are a fun event for all the family! It must feel pretty magical and is something I must do with my children.

Why not celebrate Hot Air Balloon on June 5th with some cool activities to keep kids busy!

I have 25 Hot Air Balloon arts and crafts for kids to enjoy below! Some of these involve paper, some use buttons and others use cupcake liners! 

Many of these are already in your cupboards at home making it an easy craft hot air balloon  idea for Mums in a rush! Get raiding your drawers to find all your spare materials, because you can use almost anything for this activity!

Why not Incorporate some Science into these hot air balloon crafts?!

Little kids love Science and finding out how things work!! Science is important for children as young as 3! Why not educate them on how these balloons fly?! They are called hot air balloons as hot air rises, and propels them into the sky!
