Balloon rockets are a classic craft-meets-science activity and my son is the PERFECT age to find these noisy missiles hilariously funny!
- String, thread or strong yarn (we used friendship thread from craftprojectideas.com)
- Picture of a rocket (optional – we used this one from Clker)
- Clothespin or clip (also optional, but useful with little kids)
We found that when the balloon shrunk it dropped away from the tape every time – but this made it easier to blow up again, and reattaching it to the straw was very quick.
Check out our video of the balloon rockets in action!
Another day we might try and race both balloon rockets against each other!Balloon Rockets - a classic activity that kids will love! Click To Tweet
