Yes, you sure can! There are a couple of simple ways to use ballooning in your lesson or service:

1.  The most popular is to create a sculpture based on an object or animal in your Bible story. For example, let’s say that you are teaching on Daniel in the lion’s den. Create a balloon lion while you are telling the story. Or, for the story of Jesus’ Baptism, create a balloon dove.
2.  Maybe you have an object lesson based on a basket. Instead of just showing a basket while you talk, make one with balloons while you are teaching.
3.  You can also use a balloon animal known for a particular characteristic related to your story. An example of this would be using an elephant, which is known for his memory, in a story on communion, or Jesus’ return, since you would be focusing on something the kids’ need to remember.
