Make a Balloon Stick to the Wall Like "Magic"
Ever seen a balloon "magically" stick to the wall? Almost every adult tried the classic balloon-on-wall trick as a kid, but it never ceases to amaze little kids who see it for the first time. The classic experiment uses a balloon and a head full of static, but this updated version uses a piece of wool fabric instead so you're not left with a head full of tangled hair at the end. Try it with your kids and watch their eyes light up in wonder.
What You Need:
- 2 balloons
- Synthetic or wool fabric that can create a static charge (a wool sock is ideal)
- Scraps of material
- Dry day when there isn't too much humidity in the air
