Balloons are wonderful for play. My sons love hitting, tossing, and bouncing them. Balloons are also great for using in science experiments. We have used balloons to make launchers, boats, and rockets. Here is a simple STEM activity for kids. We will show you how to make static electricity with balloons.

This is one of the easiest balloon science experiments for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and up. It is easy and fun to do. If your children like balloons, this is the activity for them.
