We will be at the Balloon Museum October 4th for those schools selected to participate to pick up their kits.

If you can't make this time, you MUST pick up your kit at the Museum front desk by 5:00 pm the following day.


It is CRITICAL someone from your school pick up your materials during this time. If they are not picked up by this time your spot will be given to the next school on the waiting list.

Tissue Paper Balloon Kits Available
