Other than the usual bubbles, does anyone have a design or use for these?

Angel/butterfly/bumble bee/dragonfly wings, gumball tubes, Elsa cape, light sabers (w/160 inside), pregnant poodle.

Off the top of my head.
If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.

I use them as a handle on flying things, like airplanes or Superman.

Put a super ball inside a clear 260, and blow the balloon in a spiral.

Like others, I use them as wings for certain animals; as a handle for flying animals - to make a ghost into a flying ghost; and the superball thing.

I don't do the spiral like Donald. I put the ball inside, inflate the balloon, then tie it into a pretzel-knot shape. I usually connect the two ends of the pretzel. It's sort of hypnotic to play with it. That might be something I learned from a TMyers video - I'm not sure.

I've made a basketball hoop hat and used a clear 260 to hold the basketball up above it. Especially if it is for an adult. Sometimes adults want a hat, but they aren't going to actually throw the ball into the hoop the way kids will.

I use clear 5" rounds all the time. I put cupcake sprinkles in the round (done at home). Use a colored 260 to make a handle (three petals and a long handle part), and you have a shaker/maracas. Kids love it, and it is super easy.

Also, I'll use clear 350/646s to put a rose inside glass, a goldfish in a tank, or similar situation where one design goes inside another.

You can also charge the balloon easily by squeezing the round, and by shaking it. The static charge makes sprinkles stick to the sides and top. Getting kids to put their fingers over the balloon near a sprinkles cluster, makes the sprinkles behave like a plasma ball. Very popular

I'll repeat this. If it loses its charge, get the kids to shake it again

Not the best. But I use them for a dog, and tell them it is a ghost dog.
