Balloon Rocket

Balloon Rocket!

  • 3 balloons (just incase if one or two of them pop)
  • 1 long piece of kite string (about 10-15 feet long)
  • Tape
  • 1 plastic straw


  1. Tie one end of the string to a chair, door knob, or the other support.
  2. Put the other end of the string through the straw.
  3. Pull the string tight and tie it to another support in the room.
  4. Blow up the balloon (don’t tie it.) Pinch the end of the balloon and tape the balloon to the straw shown below. Now you're ready to launch!
  5. Just let go of the end and watch it zoom off.

    Zeb: The balloon will fly across the line.
    Tyrone:The balloon will go across the line like a rocket and run out of oxygen or air in it and it will stop.
    Zeb: The balloon went zooming across the line.
    Tyrone: The balloon flew across the string and got from one chair to the other.
    Zeb: The air was pushing the balloon across the line.

    Tyrone: The air or oxygen comes out of the balloon causing it to move the opposite direction of the end of the balloon.
