A fun and learning site for (K6) kids and their adults
O. K., I will start at the start for this ever so simple, fun project.
All you will need is a bucket of water, loads of balloons, some good friends and definitely NO snow.
At the time of writing this, Australia is still in the middle of a long, long drought and it is up to all of us to save as much water as we can.
It is also very hot so we need a fun way to keep a little cool.
Playing under the garden hose would be fun but we must all be responsible in our water use.
You know already that, if you blow up a balloon and let it go it flies off in all directions making a really funny noise.
Try it a couple of times and then you will better appreciate the Water Rocket.
Who can get their Rocket to fly the highest?
Who can get the wettest?
Who cares? It is all far too much fun
NOTE: The Water Rocket is not recommended for indoor use
