  • Thread a straw onto your string
  • Tie your string at two points across your house – keep the string straight and tight.
  • Blow up your balloon (we like flashing alien balloons…) but don’t tie it – just hold the end between your fingers so the air doesn’t escape.
  • Use sticky tape to tape the straw to the top of the balloon – remember to keep hold of the end of the balloon!
  • Launch your balloon by letting go of the end of the balloon.

  • Set up balloon races and get some competition going.
