Today we made balloon rockets. Super fun craft for boys since we all know that boys like to throw things, run, and throw more things.
What you need:
- small dry beans or peas (anything will work as long as it is long enough to fit through the funnel)
- paint (optional)
Step 1 – put funnel in the top of the balloon and pour a handful of peas into the balloon. This weighs the balloon down and helps it to fly a lot faster.
Step 2 – tie streamers to the bottom of the balloon, this is just for looks..
Step 3 – have child paint the balloon to make it pretty. My boys didn’t want to waste time painting and waiting for it to dry. So we skipped this step.
Step 4 – have fun and throw, throw, throw!!
