Hot Air Balloon Classroom Theme Ideas

Hot Air Balloon Classroom Theme Ideas are all about students lifting each other up and soaring high together. You will see a lot of sky blue backdrops and fluffy cotton ball clouds. This theme is great for both kindergarten and lower elementary classrooms. The color themes can be either pastel or bright.
