Making Parties Easy


Idea for Charities

Can you help? I would love to know your thoughts.

I would love to undertake a charity ballloonathon, a simple idea with great benefits. This would raise money and get people talking about your charity with a lot of publicity. The event itself would be a fun public day worth coming to see.

The plan is to make a large balloon sculpture eg a full size car out of balloons. This should be made in public place, maybe an empty shop, in a shopping centre or a school.

Once the day is set:

• 1 Raise sponsors which help to build up an expectation to the big day.

• 2 Set a team to help the Balloon Man (Inflate and tie balloons, collect from the public etc)

• 3 Take photos of construction, promotion and a time lapse photos for video. (watch the whole thing in fast speed and then reverse)

What is a puppet workshop?

Posted by Tony Balloonman on April 9, 2013 at 6:25 AM Comments comments (0)

The puppet workshop is our new and exciting product, suitable for schools, organizations, holiday clubs and many more. Have you ever wanted to know the secret behind a professional puppet show?


The workshop runs for approximately two and a half hours, you not only see great puppet performances; you get to perform with professional puppets. We have found that a puppet workshop: builds confidence, team work and teaches good communication skills. It also works for all groups; additional needs or able bodied, puppet workshops are designed to be all inclusive and accessible to all. I currently run a puppet work shop for autistic adults with great success.


We have broken it up to these categories:


Meet the puppets:

Opening with a puppet show on a 18ft puppet theater

Acting and performing:

Your turn, show us your acting through games and actions

Choosing your puppet:

We will lend you a fully working puppet now your first performance


We teach how to move and make your puppet come alive

Lip sync

Now its time to talk, YOUR PUPPET IT’S ALIVE!!!


We now make your puppet into a real person

Make your own puppet

We now break for craft and you get to make your own puppet to take home

Puppet play

Let the puppet team perform for you


With games we tell a story using your own puppet

Perform your own show

How to put shows on for your family and friends

What to do next
