My son loves to play with anything that launches or flies across the room. One of his favorite toys is the catapult. We built the catapult and played a fun game with it. It is more fun when you can actually make these types of toys. The benefits are numerous. For example, kids will understand how they work and can adjust them to their liking. Furthermore, children can make as many as they like and even give them out for gifts. We did this for the fun balloon project I will share with you in this post.
We call this project the Balloon Launcher. You only need five items, which you most likely have in your home. The process to making the launcher is very easy. You can play a game with the launcher to see who can shoot objects the farthest. The toy can be used at parties to celebrate another’s accomplishment or their birthday. Below is the process for executing this fun balloon project.
