Intro: Balloon Powered Toy Car

In this instructable, i will teach you how to make a simple yet exciting Balloon Powered toy car. These are fun to race or just play with.

Step 1: Materials

To build the car, you need a hot glue gun, toy car, water bottle, balloon, (not pictured) knife

Step 2: Making the "engine"

Cut the top part of the water bottle off (see pic), then stretch the balloon over it.  

Step 3: Putting It Together

Hot glue gun the back of the car, then quickly put the "engine" on like in the pic

Step 4: How It Works

Blow up the balloon, pinch the neck, let go. If it just goes in circles it means the water bottle thing is not pointing straight.

    What do you like? To post comment on your own instructable? lol ;)
    I find the idea really stupid and really smart at the same time. Definitely a project to try to waste some time. Good job;)
