Fun kids crafts - balloon squishmonsters - what you need

Step 1: Fill up the bottle with flour

Use a funnel to fill a small water bottle about two thirds full of regular flour.

You can also use cornflour, which gives a slightly different texture.

Step 2: Blow up your balloon and attach it to the bottle

This is the trickiest part and it is much easier to do with two people helping.

First blow up your balloon and pinch the neck to hold it firmly and make sure none of the air comes out.

Then, still pinching the balloon, carefully place the neck of the balloon around the rim of the water bottle.

It’s a bit fiddly to do. Take a little time to make sure it is firmly in place.

Step 3: Fill your balloon

Tip up the bottle upside down and pour all the flour into your inflated balloon.

Step 4: Add some funky hair

Once your balloon is full then carefully take it off the bottle and gently let the air out. Tie the neck in a knot.

Take a few strands of wool and tie them round the knot to make some funky hair for your little squish-monster.

Step 5: Draw on monster faces
