Last month I had the privilege of once again performing at the LaSalle Springs Middle School Literacy Night. I always enjoy this one because of the kids really get into it and are a bit older than my normal audience. It is really awesome how may people really love balloons and my shows.
Once again for this show I also performed the “Three Little Pigs” but I had a special treat for the audience as I called the town mayor to be the Big Bad Wolf for the show. I did promise no wolf in sheep’s clothing jokes.
One of the most important things to all of us are our children. Therefore you who have a great honor of caring for precious little one should be honored.
I am also honored to have worked with many of you in caring, teaching, and entertaining these children.
But for those of you that do not know me let me introduce myself. My name is Jason Vaughn and I’m a professional balloon artist entertainer.
I have entertained in many daycares around the country and seen thousands of kids. So if you’re looking for great entertainment for your facility please consider Higher Hope Entertainment.
I have several different shows that I offer. In these shows I will take balloons and create props and costumes with them to tell fun and exciting stories.
Classic Story and Song Show
For this show I combine classic fairy tales and children’s music. Whether it be the itsy bitsy spider or the three little pigs your kids will have a great time. The show is very interactive and parents would enjoy visiting for this as well.
For this show I take stories from around the world that teach us about the culture. The show is also geared toward teaching children to enjoy books and reading. This interactive show is like a thrilling adventure for all ages.
Learn to Twist
One other option is to have a class in which your children five and up learn how to make their own balloon animals. They will learn how to make a balloon dog and a balloon sword. This will take your kids into a whole new world of artistic endeavors.

Eight years ago while on a mission trip with my Christian college I was introduced to the art of balloon twisting combined with Bible storytelling. Immediately I was entranced by this entertainment medium and before I knew it I was a professional balloon artist. Since that time I’ve had the privilege of performing hundreds of shows to both Christian and secular audiences using balloon costumes and props.
I’ve delivered many messages over the years in my show, but none are as important as the gospel of Jesus Christ, which I gladly present in “The Prince That No One Wanted.” This show is perfect for family events, VBS, Upwards, and a host of other venues. Thank you for taking the time to see why it is perfect for your event.
No Mindless Entertainment Here!
Everyone loves entertainment! Whether it is in the form of movies, television, books, concerts, ect. we are addicted to fun. While that is fine one things Christians should avoid is an excess of mindless entertainment.
For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. (Rom 8:7-8)
God’s Word tells us to avoid setting our mind on the things of the flesh and much of our entertainment is very worldly, but with my gospel allegory your audience’s mind will be engages just as much as their funny-bone.
Loads of laughs and joy
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jud 1:24-25)
In the presence of our king there is immense joy! Joy is so precious to the Christian. It is not based in our circumstances, but in our King! That is why I love performing “The Prince that No One Wanted” gospel allegory. It allows me to combine both laughter due to humor with the joy that comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sound Historical Christian Theology
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. (Tit 2:1)
There are many places calling themselves churches today that do anything but teach the Word of God. When your audience sees and understands “The Prince that No One Wanted” they will be taught only that which stands in line with historical Christian doctrine. I’m a licensed Southern Baptist minister and trained in ministry at a Southern Baptist university. While I’ve had the opportunity to work in numerous denominations the primary message and doctrine remains that salvation of sins only comes by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ the second person of the Godhead, who was born of a virgin, is fully God and man, lived a perfect life, died on a cross taking the sins of His people and rose again three days later to reign as King eternal. For more on my teaching and theology please do not hesitate to ask.
Creativity To Spark The Imagination
As the Temple of God was being built in the Old Testament the readers are told that God had gifted certain artists to work for His glory on the Temple. I believe that God still grants people gifts and talents to people for the same purpose of glorifying Him today.
As your audience sees elaborate balloon creations made into props and costumes and used in the sharing of the gospel many will be inspired to develop their own talents to the glory of God and the expansion of His kingdom.
No “Cartoon Jesus” Allowed
Many dear saints with good intentions have used a variety of modern media to create cartoon or “Child friendly” versions of Jesus. While this may do some good I fear that it can often do more harm and make many wonder if Jesus is any more real than certain overweight men in red suits.
For this reason, instead of telling about the life of Christ with balloons and possibly adding to the challenge, I decided to go the way of John Bunyan and his classic “Pilgrim’s Progress” and share the gospel in an allegory. This allows your audience to hear the the glory of the gospel message without fear of confusing Christ with fiction. After the allegory there is an explanation and gospel call to repentance and faith. A time of question and answer is available if desired as well.

In 2007 I was pleased to be a part of a world record attempt. We couldn’t properly document the entire process so the official listing was impossible. Approximately 60 balloon twisters and decorators were assembled by the project director Steven Jones in Cincinnati, OH. The sculpture was 140,000 balloons and about the size of a Wal-Mart.
The theme was based on the legend of Camelot including wizards, kings and queens, and dragons. It is also what my summer reading program for Illinois libraries is based on for “Midsummer Knights Dream”
I primarily worked with a group on the King and Queen sculpture.
Here are some photos and a video walk through of the sculpture.
