Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Confetti Sunshine

The first day of school is always fun, and a little scary, for most kids. While it’s exciting to see old friends and make new ones, the first day of school jitters may cause kids to forget important details—like lunch. Make the morning a little less stressful and a lot more fun by creating some balloon hints to ensure they have everything they need.

  1. First, fill up a bunch of balloons with your Balloon Time Helium Tank.
  2. Next, using a marker, write your child’s morning routine on different balloons. Your balloons could include things such as – “Make your bed”, “Brush your teeth”, “Don’t forget lunch”, etc.
  3. Place the balloons in spots around the house that your child is sure to find that morning.
