Balloon Barber Shop
Today, Budgie asked if he could cut his own hair. At least he asked, right? Instead of having him look like Moe from the Three Stooges with a home cut, we whipped up this balloon barber shop so he could snip away to his heart’s content.
- cardboard cereal box
- permanent markers
- transparent tape
Open up the cereal box so you have one large, flat piece of cardboard. Cut out and decorate a pair of 12-inch shoes from the cardboard. Then, cut a slit from the heels to the center of the feet.
Blow up and tie a large balloon then slip the knot of the balloon into the slit in the feet so the balloon stands up.
Draw a goofy face on the balloon with markers. Tape long pieces of yarn to the top of the balloon to make hair.
Cut and style your balloon’s hair.
Spread shaving cream over the cheeks and chin of the balloon and shave the customer with the smooth edge of the plastic knife. Wipe the knife clean with a damp cloth between strokes.
Even More Fun:
When the shave and the hair cut are done, spread extra shaving cream over the surface of the table and draw pictures with your fingers.
