A ball is a round object. A person might play with a ball by bouncing it, rolling it, kicking it, hitting it, or throwing it. Some kinds of sports that use balls are soccer, baseball, tennis, and basketball. You might break a window if you throw a ball at it.

Bis forBalloon

A ballon is a small rubber bag that you can fill up with air or helium. Balloons stretch, and can get quite big when they are blown up. Balloons you fill by blowing them up are very common at parties. Helium balloons go up if you let them go, and are fun to play with. Ordinary balloons go down if you let them go, not up.
