Rocket to the moon...
This was inspired by the book Let's Send a Rocket, poems for me that we picked up from a local fair for 50c. It's a quick and easy experiment that gives hours of entertainment (for little ones and their parents)!
Dada's quick and easy instructions:
1. Thread the string through a drinking straw
2. Tie the string to a set of poles/chairs (whatever is available)
3. Blow up balloon and tape top section to the straw (don't tie balloon off)
5, 4, 3, 2, 1 blast off............
This book was published in 1968 and is full of really odd and funny poems for kids - the pictures are wonderful.
