1. Fill a balloon full of air (you want to make sure that your skewer is longer than the balloon).
2. Dip the tip of the skewer in oil.
3. Insert the skewer on a stretchier part of the balloon (like around where the balloon is tied).
4. As you push the skewer in, twist the skewer back and forth.
5. Do the same as you push the skewer out the other side.

Hint: You can also overfill your balloon with air and then let some out before you tie the balloon. This will help stretch out the balloon.
