How to Make Balloons Last Longer

Lil Tip: Pop Balloon Animals in the Freezer to Make Them Last

What child doesn't love a balloon animal? The inflated toys are pretty common at tot birthdays, carnivals, and circuses, but there's a way a parent can try to stretch the creature's longevity. My son and daughter talked me into shelling out $10 for a couple of balloon animal bracelets at the farmers market yesterday, and the man who twisted the Hello Kitty and elephant wristlets into shape gave me a tip. He said to put the critters in the freezer when the kids aren't playing with them and the knotted pets could last for up to a year.
