Cut the neck off the balloon.
Cut the neck off the next balloon and stretch over the first lentil filled balloon. You'll need to give it a good stretch to get it around and you should have the open end facing a closed side of your second balloon.

Balloon pieces are a hazard to young children so remember to bin any left over pieces and always supervise young children when playing.
