Why do children like balloons?

Interesting Fact: The first rubber balloons were made by Professor Michael Faraday in 1824 for use in his experiments with hydrogen at the Royal Institution in London.Faraday made his balloons by cutting round two sheets of rubber laid together and pressing the edges together. The tacky rubber welded automatically, and the inside of the balloon was rubbed with flour to prevent the opposing surfaces joining together.  ( http://www.balloonmoments.co.uk/facts.htm )

  1. An interesting question…I know why I like them…they’re fun to play with, to look at, to touch, to blow up, to release the air so they make funny noises and go flying around the room, to pop, to rub on your hair and stick on the wall, to fill with water and drop on someones head and on and on 🙂

  2. Balloons of all sizes and kids of all sizes…perfect combination. Was this the ‘hand off’ to the big kid? :o)
