starsinthesamesky said: Why on earth would you crochet a balloon?
rainbowsandunicornscrafts: for physical therapy or OT (occupational therapy) for children or adults. Because balloons travel slower in the air and are softer than balls, they are easier to catch. Netting makes them more tactile and easier to catch also.
This blog is for my crafting alter ego. I did lots of crafts with my very artistic mother growing up and continue doing them with kids now. I love really good kids' crafts that hold their attention and mine.
