Sand Heads

My nine-year-old son had a school project to create a product that kids would want to buy.  This product had to be made with things around the house.  After a huge search, we found balloons and sand.

"Let's make balloon heads!" he said.

That sounded like a plan.

My son attempted to fill the balloons, but with a broken wrist, it was a little difficult.  "Mama, can you do this?"

I nodded and grabbed a funnel.  It was quite a job filling those things.  And after each one was filled, I had to blow up the balloon in order to distribute the sand evenly.  Of course that resulted in a mouth full of sand.

"Blah!" I said.  "Eating sand is not fun!"

Bubba looked at me with a serious expression on his face.  "Mama, you should be grateful. At least your whole head isn't full of sand like these guys!"

  1. Hehe! Grateful indeed! Those are cute balloons and pretty ingenious to fill them up with sand and draw the faces on them. :)

  9. These are so cool! How fun (not the sand in your mouth, but at least you son found a bright spot). ;) Looks like these could work as a stress ball, too. Maybe not with a face on them... Thanks for sharing!
