We need around 50 or even more crochet water balloons so that we can use them at our eco clubs, beach schools, workshops and events.
We want to educate children about plastic pollution and we are sure the best way to do that is by having fun. Water fights are fun. They can be plastic free if we use crochet water balloons. We are using this opportunity to make children smile and in ways that are good for the planet.
We need the balloons to be around the size of the palm of a persons hand. They can be any colour at all and there is no set pattern unless you can find one on the internet.
We would be so grateful for our help and maybe the children will then want to crochet their own balloons for home so they don't use plastic balloons anymore.
I have 5 already here so if you would like a picture before you decide if you want to help then please just let us know.
