One balloon airplane

CC0
Materials: a balloon; an air pump and scissors.


Inflate a balloon leaving a six—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

The first five bubbles you twist with the pop up twist to make the tail of the airplane. Twist the first two—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Twist the second soft one—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third one—inch bubble (Pic 4). Later you will pop the third bubble.

Twist the fourth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Twist the fifth two—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first five bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 7). This step is marked with arrows between points A and F on the scheme.

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 8). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme.

Twist both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 9). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme.

The next bubble you twist to fix the tail in a proper position. Twist the sixth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 11). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme.

Twist the 7th two—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the eighth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the eighth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 14). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I one the scheme.

Twist the ninth five—inch bubble (Pic 15). It’s the body of the airplane.

Twist the tenth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 16).

Lock both ends of the tenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 17). This step is marked with arrows between points J and K on the scheme. The tenth bubble keeps the wings in proper positions.

The next five bubbles you twist with the pop up twist to make the wings. Twist the eleventh sixth—inch bubble (Pic 18).

Twist the twelfth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 19).

Twist the thirteenth one—inch bubble (Pic 20). Later you will pop the thirteenth bubble.

Twist the 14th soft one—inch bubble (Pic 21).

Twist the 15th six—inch bubble (Pic 22).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last five bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 23). This step is marked with arrows between points J and R on the scheme.

Twist the sixteenth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 24).

Lock both ends of the sixteenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 25). This step is marked with arrows between points P and R on the scheme.

Lock both ends of the twelfth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 26). This step is marked with arrows between points L and M on the scheme.

Lock both ends of the fourteenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 27). This step is marked with arrows between points N and O on the scheme.

Pop the thirteenth bubble (Pic 28).

Pop the third bubble (Pic 29).

Fix all bubbles in proper positions (Pic 30 through 35). You have made the airplane. You can use it as it is.






You also may want to do some more work on this sculpture if you are planning to give this toy to a child. It would be better to secure the end bubble of each wing. You should do it because a child can easily untwist those bubbles just playing with the airplane. You can simply untwist and deflate the end bubble of each wing (do not deflate the wing bubbles!). Then you tie up the end. Untwist the second bubble and tie up the end of the first bubble (Pic 36).

Untwist the fourth bubble and tie up the end of the fifth bubble (Pic 37).

Untwist the tenth bubble and tie up the end of the eleventh bubble (Pic 38).

Untwist the fourteenth bubble and tie up the end of the fifteenth bubble (Pic 39).

Congratulations, you have rebuilt the airplane (Pic 40). Have fun and happy twisting :)
