Caution:  Balloons are fun toys, but can be dangerous like all toys...PLEASE make sure small children do not chew balloons or have access to broken bits. We would like all our kids to grow healthy and happy. I ask you to be responsible like professional balloonist. Adult supervision is recommended.

The first trick to making a balloon animal is to blow up the balloon. This is hard. You can buy a hand pump or use a foot ball pump to help blow up the balloons. Do not blow the balloon up all the way... you only need 1/2 a balloon.
Carefully tie the balloon. When twisting a balloon, always start at the end with the knot. Do not worry, it will not break if you twist it, but you must hold on to both ends of the balloon. Otherwise, the balloon will untwist. The balloon will not stay twisted by itself. You have to twist the balloon together.


Step 1--Blow up the balloon three quarters of the way.
Step 2--Start at the beginning with the knot and twist a 1 to 1 1/2 -inch bubble or 1 or 2 fingers wide. Make sure you hang on to both ends of balloon, otherwise it will untwist. Twist it around 2 or 3 times. Do not worry it will not break. Why didn't it break? There is space at the end of the balloon for the extra air. That is why we only blow the balloon up half way.
Step 3--While holding on to the twisted balloon, make another bubble 4 to 5 fingers in size. This will be the side of the neck. Do not let go.
Step 4--Make another balloon bubble the same size. This is the other side of the neck. Look at the picture.

Step 5--Twist balloon joints A & B together twist 2 or 4 time all the way around. The balloon will not break, and they will stay together.

Step 6--Now for the neck. Push the body of the Cobra in between the two large twisted balloons.

Does it look
like this?

Step 7--Have a lot of balloon left over? That is the tail. Bend the Cobra's body to form the S shape.
