Instructions for inflating foil balloons with air.

How to inflate a foil balloon without helium.

Total time: 5 minutes

  1. prepare

    air hole

    flatten and unfold foil balloon onto flat surface. Locate the air hole which usually has little red tab to indicate.

  2. Insert the air tube

    insert tube

    using the air tube provided (or any thin straw or pump with adapter attached) push it through the tube, making sure it is past the seal and in far enough for the air to enter.

  3. inflate


    now you can blow air into the balloon through the tube (or pump it in) to inflate the balloon fully.

  4. Ta-da done.


    Carefully remove the tube and smooth out the area where the tube had been, this reseals the air. The air filled balloons last a lot longer than helium and can be put on sticks or use double sided tape to attach to surfaces.
