Any age can actually make this craft but the younger children will need some adult supervision.

Can you vary up the card in any way to make it unique?

You can! If you’re looking for a few ways that you can make this card a bit different, why not have fun with it? The theme is about a balloon so it’s time to have a fun play on words. You could say a number of different things on the card as well and here are a few ideas to help get you started:
