Balloon Hats for Literacy

I have an amazing new project.

It's been taking up what little time I have left over during the busy season, but it's something that really brings satisfaction from the work.  Next summer we will be attempting to set a world record while supporting and spotlighting literacy.  4500 people in balloon hats!  Over 30,000 balloons and at least 100 people making hats.  It's going to be a blast!!

Fun with leftovers

After we practice I don't like to keep the balloons around.  I usually give them to a friend's kids.  This is what happens when you give a creative kid some leftover balloons.  :-)

Maker Faire Kansas City - Come see us this weekend!


This is our sculpture this year!  Started with a GIANT round balloon, uninflated it was close to 5 feet long!  If I fully inflated it, the thing would be 8ft,b ut I wanted to downsize a little to allow for the people who insist on poking and touching.

This one is dedicated to the 30 years of fun Ghostbusters has brought the world!

Maker's Faire this weekend!!!

Looking for something amazing to do this weekend?  Come visit us at the KC Maker's Faire in Union Station.  We have a fantastic sculpture planned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters.

Amazing doesn't stop with the balloons - there are robots and spinners.  People who make cars and even some guys from the physics department who shrink quarters.  So much to see.  This is our 4th year here and it's still my favorite event of the year!
