Balloon Plants

1. Hold a balloon firmly by the neck. The neck is the long part. Use a funnel, and pour 1/2 cup of dirt into the balloon. Don't turn the balloon over. (Try to find clear balloons to use.)

2. Keep holding the balloon by the neck. Add about 1/4 cup of water through the funnel. Be sure the soil in the balloon is wet. It shouldn't be soggy, though.

3. Use the funnel to drop the radish seeds into the balloon. Don't turn the balloon over.

4. If the balloon is dirty, wipe it carefully with a washcloth.

5. Now you're ready to blow up your balloon! Keep holding it gently by the neck. Now carefully blow air into the balloon. You need to keep the balloon from tipping.

6. Tie a knot in the neck to keep the air in the balloon. Tie a ribbon around the knot.

7. Tie the balloon to a hook or other place near a window. The neck should be the top.

8. Your balloon plant is ready to begin growing!


I havent tried this one yet so Im not sure if it will work or not. My son is excited about trying it though. I have to see if I can find some clear balloons somewhere.

I know this is a really old post, but did you ever get the chance try this one out? It sounds really neat, especially with the see-through balloons. Do the radishes get to be full-grown?

I never did try this one but now that I have 2 kids who would really like to try this, I might copy it out to see if it works.

If you try it, please let us know.

Thanks for bringing this idea up again!
