Balloon Rockets

This was a fun one.  

I cut a rocket ship out of foam and taped it to a straw which then I taped to a balloon.  

Then we threaded the straw on a piece of yarn stretched between 2 dining room chairs.  
(We don't have a dining room currently as we are ripping out a few walls to make a more open concept space.....yikes!)

The first time we didn't work....we figured it had to be the length of the straw or the type of string we were using so we changed both.  

The new black cord with longer a straw meant our balloon rockets zoomed down the string.  

We had a great time counting down 
3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF!!!!

Learning for Two had a great time with this activity too!
