Up up and away in the hot air balloon


This is a simple papercraft to make a hot air balloon. You could make lots and have them hanging up right across a room as a fun alternative to bunting. Older children can spend lots of time decorating them and younger children can paint or scribble which makes it a fun activity to do together with kids of different ages.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Paper
