Notes About Balloons
Submitted by B. W. Greene
Circus ideas are great! Caution on the balloons - make sure the children don't put the balloons to their face. When a balloon pops near the mouth it can wrapped around the lungs because the first reaction is a gasp which draws the pieces in to the mouth. Also make sure no one has a latex allergy. If one stretches the balloon first before blowing it up it inflates easier.
