I let go, and the balloons went up into the air.

  • Why is the figure on their own?
  • What might happen next?
  • Can you suggest an alternative title for the picture?
  • Research the environmental impacts of releasing balloons. What will happen when they come back down to earth?
  • Draw or paint your own version of the sky and stick balloons made of coloured paper on to make an artwork.
  • Try using balloons in a PE lesson instead of balls. What difference does it make to the way you kick, throw and catch?
