could put Bible versus/scripture in each balloon, and when the kids pop the balloon and read their paper, the teacher can talk more about that particular story in the Bible and how it relates to the kids.
Here's a cute birthday party idea....grab the paint trays from the dollar store and serve design your own cupcakes at the next birthday party...should keep the kids occupied longer than just eating a piece of cake, right?
Stole this idea from another pinterest post....Hung balloons upside down using streamers.... Gave me a great pic of the birthday boy waiting for his party guests!! 1st-birthday-yo-gabba-gabba-style #xmas_present
