Floating Ball Activity
Have fun with this great boredom buster activity that family members of all ages with enjoy. In a few easy steps anyone can create this fantastic Floating Ball Activity. I remember having one of these as a toy from a kids' meal at a fast food restaurant when I was a child. My children seemed to enjoy these as much as I did back then and I think that yours will too.
The object of the activity, once it is created, is to blow steadily into the straw and keep the ball afloat in the air above the funneled paper without dropping it. This project took a little troubleshooting for it to work at its best for each of them.
Things to look out for are to make sure that your funnel it tight, to make sure your seal around the straw is good and to make sure you don't cut too big of a hole in the bottom of the funnel because it will be harder to seal.You can also have fun alternating the amount of air that you blow through the straw and watch how the ball reacts while trying to keep it steady.
