This is a clever way to cover balloons so your young children can more safely play with them.
I saw a tutorial for these balloon covers recently and was absolutely IN LOVE. My 1 year old LOVES balloons and it breaks my heart to take them away because I'm petrified he will hurt himself by being crazy and biting it or something. He loves anything that's a ball, but obviously balloons have a special appeal because they're light and bounce.



So I decided to give the tutorial a try and I'm so glad I did. These were very quick to make and realllllly easy to figure out.

In the future this will be one of my favorite go-to gifts for a first birthday party. It doesn't take up tons of fabric, but it looks GORGEOUS and it's such a fun toy. Balloons are easy to keep on hand to fill these with.

They're very soft and light and fun to bounce around. My sons LOVED them... I was trying to blow them up and he was reaching for it all "eh eh eh eh!" and crying when I couldn't immediately hand it over. He was so thrilled.

Right now, my only problem is that I don't like the hole... I think I could hand sew it closed carefully after putting the balloon in, but I think the better alternative would be to put a large button hole somewhere on the balloon to feed the empty balloon through then blow up. Just a thought for future attempts.

Below I've got some pictures of what mine look like on the outside and inside while empty.
Then the bottom right picture shows how I blew up my balloon once I inserted it through the hole in the balloon cover.



I'd love to see all your balloon covers so please leave a comment and link your projects!
