What are inflatables?
Ever seen those wacky waving tube dudes outside a car dealership or furniture store? Imagine a DIY version!
In this playful, open-ended activity, thin plastic is cut into shapes and taped together so it inflates when placed over an air source, such as a fan. Motion of the wind brings the character to life, and decorative elements like googly eyes and construction paper tell its story. Inflatables are a wonderful family activity and can be done by anyone who can hold a pair of scissors.
Inflatables can be created from all kinds of materials. Explore your junk drawer or garage to find fun odds and ends to give your creation personality.
