I work hard to plan fun and educational activities for my kids, but they taught me a lesson recently, after we attended a friend’s birthday party. We got to take home five helium balloons and while I was cleaning up the kitchen I heard lots of excitement coming from the living room. I walked in to discover the kids were experimenting to figure out How Many Balloons Can Lift a Bag. This post doesn’t have the greatest photos because of poor lighting conditions, but sometimes the best activities aren’t planned. This simple science activity occurred spontaneously as my kids’ natural curiosity was piqued.
You will need:
- Helium filled balloons on string
- Small bag with handles or something light you can tie balloons onto
