at the part where you blow it up Take a piece of tape and place it over the outside of the balloon. Poke the needle through the tape and through the surface of the balloon. The balloon will not pop because the surface of the balloon cannot expand, thus popping the balloon.

Prepare the balloon by placing scotch tape on opposite sides.

### Why don't balloons pop when pricked through tape?

The tape acts as reinforcement and prevents the hole from the pin to become a rip that bursts the balloon. Without the tape stuck onto the balloon the needle prick would allow the rubber tension to rip itself apart because of the air pressure stretching the rubber which would be in tension. The tape stops the balloon being able to split and so it doesn't burst. It used to be a kids trick to put 2 pieces of tape on opposite sides of a balloon and then push a long knitting needle right through the balloon without bursting it.

### If I put balloons in the hot car is there any way to decrease the chance of them popping?

As the temperature of the air in the balloon increases, it expands causing the balloon to stretch and eventually pop. The only ways to prevent the balloons from popping in the hot car would be to either put less air in them or find a way to make sure they don't get too hot by maybe putting them in the trunk out of direct sunlight.

### How much air is in balloons?

There should be something on the balloons packaging with that informateion but just get a bike pump and blow the balloon up as much as you can then sick the needle of the bike pump in the balloon and there is your answer. As much as you can put in without making it burst. The nature of the material (its elasticity, durability, porosity...), its thickness, the engineering and design of the balloon, and the use to which it will be put all go into determining how much air a balloon will hold. Meteorological balloons don't do too much expanding. Their job is to stay strong and functioning for as long as it takes to gather all the information it is meant to gather.
