An extremely stylish and totally fun ombre colour-dipped balloon advent calendar, for the most poptastic way to count down to Christmas.
Perfect for Christmas excited children (plus big grown-up kids, of course), this activity advent calendar includes all the balloons you'll need together with numbered star tags printed in silver on white.
Our advent calendar balloons are designed to be filled with the included chocolates and activities, blown up, fastened securely, and strung from the ceiling (or bannisters or dado rail!) for a truly amazing alternative advent calendar. Each day, you pop your balloon and discover what’s inside.
We’ll provide you with thirty balloons (10 of each colour) but you only need 24 if you want to display it in a colour-dipped style as in our image. The extras are in case any pop unexpectedly or deflate too soon! We include 25 numbered tags to attach to your inflated balloons and we also include a foil wrapped chocolate for each day, plus two activity and joke sheets for you to cut up and roll into each balloon. These are printed on beautiful silver backed paper and we have even included instructions on how to fold your jokes/activities into tiny silver origami stars to decorate your Christmas table with!
You may choose to blow up all the balloons on 30 November, or surprise your child each morning with a new balloon hanging outside their door to pop and enjoy!
Of course, you can add your own little extras to the balloons for a truly spectacular Christmas countdown. Try glitter shapes, confetti, stickers, mini Lego figures, whatever you think they would enjoy – just nothing too heavy or pointy!
To get your goodies into your balloon, stretch the neck and pop your bits and pieces into the uninflated balloon. Then when you inflate it, the goodies will be inside!
Top tips for balloon longevity:
Once your balloon is inflated, ensure the knot is tied as tightly as possible, this is a weak point for air leakage. When displaying your balloons, keep them away from radiators, hot rooms and bright lights. A hallway may be appropriate. You may want to consider inflating just one a day if you want the best most resounding pop! If you choose to blow up all 24 balloons at the beginning of advent, please be aware they will deflate a little at a varying rate depending on room temperature, location and any other bits up pop in them.
These advent balloons were custom printed for us right here in the UK.
Not for children under 3 years.
Adult supervision required. Keep uninflated balloons away from children. Discard broken balloons at once. To inflate, use of a balloon pump is recommended. Pump not included.
