Making a balloon car is a fun and easy way to repurpose a drink carton into a science experiment, craft lesson and eventual plaything for the kids. This activity can help teach your kids how wind energy can propel an object and will also encourage them to discover the potential for craft in waste items.
- Half-gallon (1.8 liter) milk carton
