These pictures were from a few days after Ted’s birthday. Aluminum foil balloons are really hardy – they can stay afloat for 2 weeks, although by the end of 2 weeks they will look very miserable and no longer float all the way to the ceiling.
It worked for us though, because in the second week, the balloons were floating about the house at a height that was very accessible to Ted. He had plenty of fun chasing the balloon all over the place as the fan blew it around and be would break into little squeals of delight when we finally managed to pounce on the balloon.
Of course, the poor balloons got very battered and worn from the way Ted grabbed at them but we didn’t mind because he was having so much fun and was getting so much utility out of them.
The best part? These balloons are reusable. I just have to bring them back to any balloon shop and they can fill the back up for me for a small fee. 🙂 Fun!
