Materials: three balloons; an air pump and scissors.

First we are going to use one balloon to make a pentagon shape. Inflate a red balloon leaving a four—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first three—inch bubble (Pic 2).

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

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 4).

Twist the third three—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Twist the fourth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 7).

Twist the fifth three—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Twist the sixth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 10).

Twist the 7th three—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Twist the 8th soft one—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Lock both ends of the eighth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 13).

Twist the ninth three—inch bubble (Pic 14).

Twist the tenth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the tenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 16). The rest of the balloon is the eleventh bubble.

Lock both ends of chain of the first ten (the first through the tenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 17).

Lock the end of the balloon around the second bubble (Pic 18 through 20). You have made the pentagon shape with a handle.



Now, we are going to use two balloons to twist arrows of the star and then attach each arrow to one of the sides of the pentagon. Inflate the yellow balloon leaving a four—inch flat tail (Pic 21 and 22).


Tie the nozzle of the yellow balloon around the fourth red bubble (Pic 23).

Twist the first yellow five—inch bubble (Pic 24).

Twist the second yellow soft one—inch bubble (Pic 25).

Lock both ends of the second yellow bubble in one lock twist (Pic 26).

Twist the third yellow five—inch bubble (Pic 27).

Lock the free end of the third yellow bubble around the sixth red bubble (Pic 28).

Twist the fourth yellow five—inch bubble (Pic 29).

Twist the fifth soft yellow one—inch bubble (Pic 30).

Lock both ends of the fifth yellow bubble in on lock twist (Pic 31).

Twist the sixth yellow five—inch bubble (Pic 32).

Lock the free end of the sixth yellow bubble around the tenth red bubble (Pic 33). The rest of the yellow balloon is the seventh bubble.

Lock both ends of the yellow balloon in one lock twist (Pic 34 through 37). The seventh yellow bubble is the second handle.




Inflate the second yellow balloon leaving a three—inch flat tail (Pic 38 and 39).


Tie the nozzle of the second yellow balloon to the end of the first yellow balloon (Pic 40).

Twist the first five—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 41).

Twist the second soft one—inch bubble (Pic 42).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 43).

Twist the third five—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 44).

Lock the free end of the third bubble of the second yellow balloon around the tenth red bubble (Pic 45).

Twist the fourth five—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 46).

Twist the fifth soft one—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 47).

Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 48).

Twist the sixth five—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 49).

Lock the free end of the sixth bubble of the second yellow balloon around the tenth red bubble (Pic 50).

Twist the seventh five—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 51).

Twist the eighth soft one—inch bubble of the second yellow balloon (Pic 52).

The rest of the second yellow balloon is the ninth bubble (Pic 53).

Make sure the ninth bubble is five—inch. Attach the end of the second yellow balloon to the end of the first yellow balloon. You have made the five points star with two handles (Pic 54 through 61). Pull your arm through the handles to use the star as a shield.








You can add some more balloons to the star to make the shield even better. Inflate a blue balloon leaving a two—inch flat tail (Pic 62).

Lock the nozzle of the blue balloon to any point of the star (Pic 63).

Twist the first blue eight—inch bubble (Pic 64).

Lock the free end of the first blue bubble with the next point of the star (Pic 65).

Twist the second blue eight—inch bubble (Pic 66).

Lock the free end of the second blue bubble with the next point of the star (Pic 67).

Twist the third blue eight—inch bubble (Pic 68).

Lock the free end of the third blue bubble with the next point of the star (Pic 69). The rest of the blue balloon is the fourth bubble. Make sure the fourth bubble is the same eight—inch.

Lock the free end of the fourth blue bubble with the next point of the star (Pic 70).

Inflate the second blue balloon to make the last eight—inch bubble. Tie the nozzle of the second blue balloon to the end of the first blue balloon (Pic 71).

Twist the fifth blue eight—inch bubble (Pic 72).

Lock the free end of this bubble with the other end of the first blue balloon (Pic 73).

Cut off the rest of the second blue balloon and tie off the end. Congratulations, you have made the shield (Pic 74 and 75). Have fun and happy twisting :)
