36″ Balloons (You can often find them at independently owned party stores, or online here!)
Metallic Pipe Cleaners
Strong Tape and/or Hot Glue
Scallop Scissors (optional)
Cut a strip to your desired size for the ornament topper. Mine was about 4″ by 12″. I decided to scallop one edge of the strip, but that’s totally optional! Tape or hot glue the ends of the strip together, and then glue a pipe cleaner to the top of the cylinder you just made, forming a loop. Last but not least, tape or hot glue (use the gun on the low heat setting) your ornament topper to your balloon, covering up the balloon’s tail. Done!

kids how to write an essay could be a challenging task. They could still be
struggling with the entire process or essay writing in terms of the structure
and the whole sentence flow. Also they might have a difficult time expressing
themselves properly. But once they know the fundamentals of essay writing, it
could be a very rewarding skill for them. It is also a vital component for them
to learn at an early age because once they hit higher levels of education such
as high school and college. It is important to teach them how to be organized
in their approach for their essays. For some kids, essay writing might be easy
to understand, but for others, it may take more time to explain and get used
to. Here are a few simple but important tips for essaying writing for children.
Make sure the child has knowledge with spelling and grammar
Ensuring that the child is
equipped with the basic, age-appropriate spelling and grammar concepts is vital
because these are the building blocks of essay writing. Without this, the child
may get frustrated and give up easily. That is something you wouldn’t want to
happen because this is one of the first and vial steps to their essay writing
Introduction of thesis concepts
There should be a proper
introduction of essay concepts so the child may get a grasp of the entire idea.
If the child is having a difficult time with writing concepts, you could
provide the child with a these statement to give them a starting point. For
kids with more advanced writing skills, they could come up with their own
thesis statement on their own. Put emphasis that a thesis has a “main point”
that should be explained throughout the entire paper. All the paragraphs, down
to the very sentence should be relevant to the main point.
Creation of an outline
Crafting an outline may be a
problem for a child because it may be new to them. An outline will help them to
formulate their thoughts and sentences eventually leading to paragraphs. They
should know that sentences should have relation to one another. Explain the
thought of an introduction paragraph; a concluding paragraph and the logical
structure flow of the paragraphs in between. An outline could also help them
with their brainstorming before their actual writing.
For children having a difficult
time or writing an essay for the first time, providing examples might be of big
help to them. Search around for a few good essays so they can take a look at it
if they need help in constructing their essay. Be as hands-on with their needs
through their first couple essays. Let them build up their confidence in
writing an essay alone eventually after. You could also try showing them
examples of the “should not” examples so they know what they should stray away
from when writing essays. Make sure they understand what they should be doing
to what they should stay away from.
Practice, practice, practice
The key to perfecting a certain
task to being somehow close to perfection is to practice as much as possible.
This is very much essential for children to learn the “dos” and the “don’ts” in
essay writing. Let them practice over and over again and read over the paper to
make sure that they followed through with the proper guidelines and basics with
essay writing. Once you provide them with the proper building blocks on essay
writing, they will eventually start developing their skills and development of
the mastering of their essay writing skills for future endeavors
