A rainy afternoon and a restless boy is the perfect condition for creating a balloon powered Lego car!
It has been raining and raining and raining some more here! It was a very wet weekend and as you can imagine the kids were getting restless by the end of it. Time to get crafty!
Luckily I came across some photos online of a very clever balloon powered car and inspired my Mr Happy (6) to have a go.
The idea is simple: incorporate a balloon into your “car” so that when you blow it up and let it go, the air makes the car roll.
There was a little bit of science in there somewhere too!
We were inspired by Davis Creek Elementary’s post about Lego cars.
