My kids and I had an early Mother’s Day celebration with a balloon sculpting workshop conducted by Lily Tan, well-known for her record-setting balloon creations like the pirate ship she created earlier this March school holidays. Click here to read more.
My kids learnt to make a special heart-shaped balloon and floral arrangements for me at the workshop. We also helped set a record in the Singapore Book of Records for the longest Mother’s Day balloon arrangement in Singapore. Check out the following footage!
Step 1: Learning To Pump The Balloons, Tie them and Connect the Balloons
Not as easy as it seems, but fun once you get the hang of it.
Step 2: The Master of Balloons, Lily Tan demonstrating how to get the balloons to be of the right size and how to connect them together.
Lily demonstrating the art of pumping the right amount of air into the balloon.
Then, showing how to tie two balloons together.
Taking a quick snapshot before leaving them to it. I will be popping in next door to attend a workshop on scream-free parenting organized by the school’s PSG (parent-support group).

Step 3: The Finished Product
Delicately writing a personal message to mom on the balloons.
Setting a record for the longest balloon message for moms on Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the loving, hardworking and dedicated mothers!
