Pom pom cannons

Another balloon powered activity to go with the rockets. Pom pom cannons!

All you need is an open ended cylinder (we used a postal tube, you could also try a tin can or a cardboard coffee cup), a balloon and something light to launch - we used pom poms.

Tie the balloon up and cut the tip off the opposite end.

Stretch the balloon over one end of your cylinder, load it up with a pom pom or two and away you go!

It took awhile for Ladybug to actually notice the pom poms being launched out of the top but once she noticed what was happening she was forever "re-loading" with more and more pom poms.

Pin It Now!
