2. With the help of the funnel, fill up the balloon with flour. Push the flour down into the ballon with the aid of the stick. Make sure to be holding the end of the balloon tightly to avoid a mess. Stop putting flour in the balloon when it reaches the neck. Don’t fill the neck. Tie the into a knot to stop the flour from getting out of the balloon.
3. Take another balloon (it may be of a different color, the last result will not be adfected) and cut most of the neck of using scissors. Stretch the second balloon over the first one as a second layer. The second layer will assist prevent the dispersion of flour all over the site in the event a hole would appear.
