HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Materials needed for your hovercraft (Copyright 2024 by KSAT – All rights reserved.)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Old CD or DVD
  • Large Balloon

DO THE EXPERIMENT

STEP 1: Decorate your CD or DVD if you’d like

STEP 2: Using the hot glue, glue the closed pop-top to the middle of the CD or DVD

STEP 3: Blow up your balloon and twist it — do not tie it! By twisting it you’ll temporarily keep the air from flowing out of the balloon
