Hot Air Balloon Crafts and Snacks

The first hot air balloon flight was on June 5th 1783. I’ve never been on a hot air balloon ride due to my irrational fear of heights, still I thought that I’d share a few hot air balloon crafts, snacks, and activities I found around the web so that you can celebrate in style (safely…on the ground where the good Lord intended us to be 😉 )!

50+ Hot Air Balloon Snacks and Crafts

June 5th is also National Gingerbread Day, so I think that some Hot Air Balloon shaped Gingerbread cookies are in order! Use this gingerbread recipe to make the hot air balloon cookies below.

  1. You always have the best links! Thanks for all of the great hot air balloon links!


    • Thanks, Michelle! It comes from a ton of researching. I think I even left out about 10 links that were on my list. Maybe I’ll go add them back in when I get the time.


  2. Hi! I am visiting from voiceboks. The answer to your question is no, no, and no. I must admit that I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. Something about it seems magical, but when I consider the price the magic disappears. 🙂


  3. hey im visitng from bcc. such a fun blog! and what great inspiration. I love all the hot air balloon ideas.



  4. Love all the links. Those look like some fun activities. I might just have to try a couple of those with the kids. 🙂


  5. Your site looks very cool! Great ideas for my almost three year old! I am also from Beaver County, PA,…so I guess that makes me like it all the more 🙂
