Which is correct: Baloon or Balloon
How to spell Balloon?
Baloon is Incorrect
Balloon is Correct
"Balloon" has two "l's" and two "o's" – pairs of letters like its two attached strings.
Think of two loops, which can remind you of the double "o" in "balloon."
A balloon is too big to have just one 'o'.
Remember "balloon" like "saloon," both have double 'l's and 'o's.
If you're floating "on" air, add another 'o' to get "balloon."
