Hi Carol!

Good idea.

I'll let our activity department know to release country-specific photos next time.

This site has over 50 language cue cards in several formats. I print and laminate and then hole punch and put a ring binder for easy use.

Posted in Summer Yarn Balls

Be careful to only use cotton or hemp twine or pure cotton or wool yarn because any synthetic yarn or twine does not harden and when you take out the balloon it tends to collapse. Also it is best to spray cooking oil on the balloon before adding the wet twine as this stops any from sticking to the balloons.

You're welcome Frances, our clients do enjoy these activities, though I would not think them better than the program sets as they are only thin paper & laminate.
