Step 1: Gather Materials

You need the following materials 1. A garbage bag 2.Wire 2. Fire starter

Cut two sections of wire as wide as the opening hole

Step 3: Attach to Bag

Make a hook on each end and poke it through the bag 5 or. 6 times

To hold the fire starter cut a 6 inch piece of wire and bend around x in wire and make two points to stick it on.

Step 5: Launch

To launch have some one hold the bag and you need to light the fire starter and don't let the bag melt then you will let go when it is blown up let go and watch fly.

    Agreed. Silk paper does the job magnificently !…

    it cant come down until the fires out and it just got done raining out

    you could tie some kite string to the balloon and then you could real it in when you were done

    Nope ! The higher the balloon is, the longer the string is … thus the heavier : all in all the heat would be high enough to lift both balloon and string !…
