  3. Blow up the balloon using your air, or helium if desired, and tie it shut.
  4. Decorate your space with the balloons.Fun Tips: Add a folded up piece of paper with a fun sentiment to each balloon. Maybe “Congratulations” or “Here’s to Your Future” for graduation or “Go Team” for a spirit rally.Make a balloon for each student who has a birthday every week.
