Build & Race Balloon Hovercrafts

How far can balloon hovercrafts go?

The Minizens at the Motion Center have a ton of balloons leftover from a party. They don’t want to waste perfectly good balloons by throwing them in the trash, so they’ve thought of a fun way to reuse the balloons – a Balloon Hovercraft Making Challenge!

Join the Motion Center’s Balloon Hovercraft Making Challenge. Your task is to make and decorate your own balloon hovercrafts. You can also try doing your own balloon hovercraft race! Don’t forget to send us photos or videos of your race!
