Balloon animals are, simply put, balloons that
resemble animals. They are usually made of one balloon.
Most every one who twists balloons starts out making the simple one
balloon dog. This is because the dog is the basic animal shape. Think
of it like balloon evolution. First there was the dog. But wait, when
you shorten the ears and increase the neck, hey look it is a giraffe.
Most all one balloon animals stem from differing the proportions of
the dog. Give it a try. Use your imagination and see what animals you
can come up with.
After you get a few one balloon animals down and your confidence up
try adding another balloon to the mix. Use the second balloon for
detail. The first balloon was the cake, the second balloon going to be
our frosting. Try and make a one balloon horse. ( a dog with a short
ears and a neck as long as his body.) Use the second balloon to give
him hair on his neck, or maybe a tail. Be creative.
