  • Today I'm gonna show you a really cool trick of how to thread a balloon onto a skewer.

  • Start by taking a balloon. Inflate it with air and tie a knot at it.

  • If we look at the bottom here, we can see it's a deeper color yellow. This is because the rubber sticker are not stretched out so much, so it's under less strength.

  • Same goes for this point right at the top, and it's at here we're gonna be pushing our skewer through.

  • So take a skewer. Make sure it's nice and smooth with no rough edges.

  • And coat it with a thin layer of washing up liquid.

  • You should now be able to push it straight into the bottom of the balloon without it popping.

  • Then, line it up with a thick bit of rubber at the top and carefully push it on through.

  • And there we have it. A balloon threaded onto a skewer. Pretty cool hum.

  • When you're done, you can pull the skewer out and pop the balloon.

  • It's a great party trick, and with a bit of practice, I found it even works with red balloons.
