So today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate it than by making cool balloons for my kiddo’s school for a Donuts for Dads event they had there today? When I thought about donuts and dads, Homer Simpson immediately came to my mind and I thought to myself, I have to make Homer and Bart for this event,lol. 🙂
I am on the PTA and I love being a part of the school and being of help there. The people there are just so awesome and I just love them and how they care so much and do such a great job.
I made an over 6 ft tall Homer Simpson along with a big Bart complete with Skateboard and I even threw in a Donut Centerpiece.
This was quite a challenge. These are tricky characters to translate into balloon form and I think I did a pretty good job. It definitely grew my problem solving skills. These are original Patricia Balloona balloonification of Simpsons designs. 🙂
I ran out of yellow 646’s otherwise I would have used them for Homer arms. That was a bummer but overall I am quite pleased with everything.
I did lots of stuff I had never done before and was just going with it and problem solving as I went and I just played around a lot and it was an iterative process.
They were a huge hit at the event so that felt good and they withstood a storm of kids touching and messing with them,lol.
