We were involved in a super fun project – – #HappinessFloats! The #HappinessFloats Movement brings sunshines during the winter months, when everyone needs a little bit of fun. I can’t think of anything more basic to bring fun and a smile to a day like a balloon.
I knew immediately that I wanted to involve my kids in this project. I love opportunities to teach them service and fun and how to spread happiness to those around us. A great activity for a day off of school.
They were excited to see that you can fill balloons with helium at home – so cool!! Just grab a tank from Balloon Time (we found ours at Walmart).
Then we wrote uplifting and encouraging words on the balloons. They thought of a big list of words and we wrote them, one on each balloon, with a silver marker. Things like “hope, smile, shine, dream big, awesome” etc. And then we piled in the car with about a gazillion balloons and list of stops to make.
We opted to do the “knock and run” version – – we love that!! It just makes it extra fun to deliver and receive. I’m sure most people found us out, but that’s okay, it’s still fun!
And we put together a quick video (it’s only about a minute long) about the experience – hope you enjoy it!!
