In this instructable, I will be showing you how to make your own mini hot air balloon from just a few, cheap household items.
As you view this instructable, you will not only learn how to build the hot air balloon, but also learn the technology behind hot air balloons. This is a great hands-on learning experience that I use to teach my science class.
Step 1: Materials
1- Large Plastic Bag(I used a bag from the dry cleaners)
3-4 Birthday candles
1-Thick and sturdy wire
And of course some patience:)
Step 2: Tie The Bag
Then knot the top of the bag where the hole for the hangers is(only if you have a dry cleaners bag)
Step 3: Cut and Bend Wire
Then, twist them together, forming an X shaped structure.
Step 4: Make the Candle Holder
Step 5: Glue the Cup and Add Candles
Then glue 3-4 candles to the inside of the cup.
