Balloons are one of the simplest things to craft in Minecraft Education Edition. You can make different colored Balloons by changing the color of Dye during the process of crafting the Balloon. Blue Dye will make a Blue Balloon, Black Dye will make a Black Balloon, so on and so forth.
You can hold the Balloon in your hand or you can put it on a Wooden Fence, which opens up a lot of decorative ideas. Balloons can be placed on passive mobs like Pigs and Chickens, and depending on the size of the mob, they will fly up at a certain speed. The bigger they are, the slower they will fly. Balloons follow real-world physics, which means they will bob around. They will also pop if there is a Block on top of them while flying, and can also be popped by Bow and Arrows.

How to Make Balloons in Minecraft Education Edition
You will firstly need a couple of ingredients to make a Balloon, namely 6 Latex items, a Block of Helium, a choice of Dye, and a Lead. The Helium Block must contain 2 protons, 2 electrons, and a neutron when making using the Element Constructor.
Once you have all of the Items with you, go to a Crafting Table. Fill the Left and Right Columns with Latex, leaving you to have only the middle column empty. Now take the Helium Block and place it in the center.
Above the Helium Block put a Dye of your color choice. This will give the desired color of the Balloon. Finally, at the bottom of the Helium Block, put a Lead. This will give you the ability to tie the Balloon to other Entities or Blocks. And voila! Your Balloon is now ready!
