Nursery School's Balloon Cars

The Nursery children have been busy this week making their own balloon propelled cars. This activity stemmed from the staff's observations of the children which highlighted their interest in operating remote controlled cars and releasing inflated balloons to watch how they flew. They decided to combine these two interests and together with the children explored the internet to find methods for making balloon powered cars. The children embarked on this task with great enthusiasm and were highly motivated to find different ways of being successful, modifying their designs were necessary. They tested their cars in the playground with much delight.
