At Home Projects: Balloon Rockets


  • Straw
  • Balloon
  • Construction Paper
  • Scotch Tape
  • Scissors


  • Cut off the rolled end of the balloon and insert the straw
  • Use tape to secure the balloon (test blowing up the balloon to make sure there are no leaks, add more tape if needed)
  • Cut out fin pieces to tape on the straw (opposite end of the balloon; be sure to leave enough room on the straw that you can still blow up the balloon)
  • Blow up the balloon, put finger over the end of the straw until you are ready to let your balloon rocket fly
