The students will learn how to inflate long (260) twisty balloons with a hand pump (we do not learn mouth inflating), tie the balloon & how to do a basic fold.

Students will start off learning basic balloon twisting skills-inflating, tying a knot & a basic fold and twist. Advanced classes are also available. If you already know the basics, check out the other courses (102-104) to see which class is appropriate for you. In the 3 weeks that follow they will progress through more difficult twists and will be able to "WOW" others with their animals & creations. They will have enough material to make balloons for fundraising for school, church, camps or clubs they are in.
Practicing between lessons is highly encouraged. There is the possibility to learn more figures if everyone is well-practiced.
materials: Betallatex Professional Balloon Twisting Kit with 50 balloons and a pump-$18 free shipping on Amazon. Or 260 sized balloons. It is important that they are "260". The preferred brand is Qualatex or Betallatex (Sempertex in Canada) My supplier is LaRocks Fun & Magic Outlet (https://www.larocksmagic.com/) (260 is the size, not the quantity) Other brands are not recommended and could cause a lot of frustration because of using cheaper balloons.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
