Craft Pattern Hot Air Balloon Image
Does anyone not like balloons? I've never met them. I think people just naturally envy anyone who is brave or foolish enough to break the laws of gravity if only for a few hours to soar over the land for a bird's eye view. Make a pretend paper balloon race game with these balloon images or make photo frame masterpieces to hand out school photos to family, friends and relatives. Balloons make great award certificates to hand out as certification of a job well done! Decorate with Crayola Crayons or markers and hang them from the ceiling, or decorate the walls and halls, trees, office cubicle and window panes.
Way back in the 80's my dad took me and my family to the annual Balloon Festival in Indianola Iowa. A little while later it was amusing to receive the Via, AAA magazine in which a photo of the back of my husband's head appeared as he watched the skyline of balloons. I never saw the photographer! The event was awe inspiring to watch hundreds of balloons ascending into the skies and quietly floating away. Back then it was a public event and we were poor, so any place we could go where we could drag out our blanket and picnic baskets and enjoy the event we went.
Once as I was commuting to work in down town Sacramento on the lite rail, a huge dirigible came into view and actually matched the speed of the train for a few minutes so everyone on the train could get a good enjoyable look at the blimp and its passengers. It was a way cool treat that brightened the dull morning commute.
Balloons are popular items. Most grocery stores have a section to sell helium balloons in all shapes, sizes and colors. Some stores, such as Costco, use pretty balloon images as fund raisers for charity then they post the balloons for public view. These balloons are great subjects for coasters, place mats and table decorations. Use as photo frames for family members or print on sticky paper and make labels and name tags.
