Spinning 3D Hot Air Balloon Craft – Project for Kids

Put the “E” in S.T.E.A.M and engineer your own hot air balloon! My kids are just amazed by hot air balloons. Now is the time when we start to see a lot of them with the good weather! They were excited when I mentioned making some of our own that we could hang up and spin around! Also, who doesn’t love the movie UP? Balloons galore!
