Hot Air Balloon

The kids and I did this hot air balloon a few years ago, we liked it so much we thought we would try it again.
We used: Plastic grocery bag, Styrofoam (or plastic cup), scissors, thread, needle, blow dryer.

Cut the cup down to about 1/4 of its original size, leaving the bottom. Also cut the handles off the plastic bag.
Take the needle and thread and sew around the opening of the bag, to make the opening smaller.
Now hang the basket by sewing 4 threads equally around from the cup to the bag.

Place the opening over the hairdryer and turn on high. Now let it fly.
