We expriemented with different sizes of straws and found it was easier to blow the balloons with the big straws. It was also fun to blow the balloons across the table without the straw! We tried blowing the balloons with the straw above our head, and we found that it took a lot of skill and air! Next, we went into my bedroom with the ceiling fan on high and tried throwing the balloons up, we found they came right back down - fast! Elliott had the idea to turn off the fan to see what would happen - the balloons went up and came down slower! The last experiment was putting the balloons in front of the table fan. We tried all 3 speeds. The boys thought it was the most fun to have the fan on high, they loved watching the balloons go flying!
