While on facebook sometimes people share interesting ideas and so I think I'll use this one this year when I teach transports:
For each balloon, take two 2 1/2 inch lengths of ribbon, and tie them together with a knot in the center.
Take a small, disposable paper cup, and poke a hole in the front, back and each side. Thread the ends of the ribbons through the holes, and secure with a knot.
Inflate a balloon, decorate as desired and place it inside the ribbons.
Use tape or a little glue to keep the ribbons in place. This also makes a fun decoration! (Float time: 4 1/2 hours)
Using arts and crafts we can teach different transports: the previous craft - air balloon, an origami for boat, a car with play doh, etc... We just have to use our imagination ;)
