Here’s what you’ll need to make your own chalkboard balloons:

Balloon Time Chalkboard BalloonsTo make your chalkboard balloons, start by filling black balloons with helium using your Balloon Time Helium Tank. I love having one of these on hand at the house for special occasions, birthdays, holidays, or just random surprises for the kids! Once your balloons are filled, tie them off & attach ribbon to them. Use a white chalk marker to write whatever phrases you’d like. Then, go over the balloon with chalk a bit to really give it that chalkboard feel.

That’s it! SUPER easy and then you have adorable chalkboard balloons!

Then, do their individual photos with their balloons! So many fun ways to get creative with these! And, it’s so easy to do when you have a helium tank right at the house!!

  2. Such a clever idea! And kids love balloons…I know my four-year old would squeal if he saw a balloon just for him on the first day of school 🙂
