Some games create immersive experiences for players with specific goals. Sometimes these are combined with intriguing stories that grab people and draw them in, leaving them no choice but to keep playing.
And then there are the titles that decide to go in a completely different direction, like Minecraft, which offers a smorgasbord of variety. You can spend all your time crafting items in the game, like balloons. If you’ve ever wondered how to make them, we’ve got your back.

There are definitely many ways to pass the time while playing Minecraft. You could spend hours and hours raising and taming axolotls, and crafting/reinforcing various weapons and items is also an important part of the game.
You can also make balloons, which, for the most part, are in the game for fun rather than functionality.
So how do you create these bad boys? Well, you will need some latex to make them, just like balloons in real life! However, in the game, you will need to collect five carbons and eight hydrogens, which will produce a latex. Repeat that five more times to have six latexes, then you can combine that with a helium, a single lead, and then whatever color dye you like to make your balloon.
And there you have it! You will get a balloon and you can do some things with it. You can have your character hold it, which doesn’t really do much except make it look like your Minecraft avatar just got back from the carnival and had a lot of fun. You can also probably have a balloon party with your friends online so everyone can have a balloon cult in the game.
Balloons can also be used for decorative purposes, but cannot be attached to anything. It has to be a fence. There’s also another thing you can do with balloons in the game that’s likely to annoy PETA. You can tie them to the animals and watch them fly.

This only works on passive creatures, so it’s not like you can put it on an enemy and watch them fly away. (This would be one of the more festive ways to dispatch enemies, and honestly, the Minecraft developers should probably consider this as an option.)
One of the coolest aspects of the game’s balloons is the physics associated with them. They float and, just like balloons in real life, can be punctured, punctured and popped. If a balloon floats on a block or one is placed on top of it, that balloon will pop. Similarly, players can use a bow and arrow to shoot them down.

Making and interacting with balloons in Minecraft: Education Edition is also a fun way to teach kids physics. IDTech had some positive things to say about allowing children to play, as it can reinforce some educational principles.
“Given that Minecraft is both educational and has great entertainment value, yes, Minecraft can be considered good for kids,” they wrote. “In addition, Minecraft improves life skills, complements school skills and develops professional skills.” Teaching children the concept of finite resources and combining them to create a world for themselves can simulate the real world.
A quick guide to an exclusive basic edition for education that is balloons. Balloons are made with latex, helium, dye, and lead. You can put a balloon on a fence post. It will jump once it hits a solid block. You can right click small mobs with the balloon and mob pic.twitter.com/gEL5bYQMSy

So there you have it! Start collecting carbon, lead, helium, and hydrogen along with various dyes to start making balloons.
