Hats off to the GRADS! Let’s toss our hats and let the balloons soar. Reach for the stars with a Graduation Hat Balloon Reveal. A fun way to get everyone involved in celebrating at your Graduation Party.
- Balloon Time Helium Tank
- 2 black poster boards
- 1 foam core black board
- 1 string with tassel
- 4-6 latex balloons
- Ribbon or string
- Cut the poster boards down horizontally by 4-6 inches.
- Attach the boards together by stapling on each side.
- Tape down the seams to keep secure and then connect the boards making a standing circle.
- Tape the end of the string with the tassel to the top of your foam core board and let the tassel hang over.
- Inflate a few balloons using the Balloon Time Helium Tank and tie each with string.
- Fill the hat with your balloons and top with the tassel board to keep the balloons inside.
- When ready for the release, lift the top of the hat and say: Hats off to your Grads!
NOTE: Hot ceiling lights can pop your balloons. If you have high ceilings you can tape your balloons to the table or secure the balloons onto a jar of rocks or candy inside the hat.
