Tying a Balloon Knot

Tying a balloon knot can be tricky. We've all been there before. You blow up a balloon, start tying a knot and before you know it, it's somehow become attached to your index finger! But there is an easier way to tie a balloon, that won't leave you tied up in knots!

Balloon Knot - Step 1

After inflating the balloon you hold it against your body. With your palm facing downwards, take the neck of the balloon between your thumb and your first and second fingers. With your other hand stretch out the neck (fig.1).

Then bring the neck up and around your fingers back to the body of the balloon (fig. 2). At the same time rotate your left hand anti-clockwise so that your palm is facing upwards (fig. 3).

Then pass the neck through the center of the loop created between your first and second fingers (fig. 4 and 5).

Finally, while pulling the neck through the loop, withdraw your fingers (fig. 6 and 7).

Great! You're done. It might seem a little awkward to begin with, but after a few times it will become second nature.
