Balloon Rockets

It was a rainy miserable day today.  With the kids we flicked through my Kids Activity Board on Pinterest (what would we do without it) and they picked Balloon Rockets.  The original link is here with full instructions.  Its a great site with a heap of easy science ideas for kids.

The kids loved this, especially racing their balloons against each other.

It was most definitely a hands on parent involved activity.  The children struggled to get their balloons attached to the sellotape, so needed us to do it for them.  Just secretly I think the hubby might of had more fun than the kids, figuring out ways to attach the balloons so they flew in spirals.

It was a great way to spend a dark rainy afternoon.
