Up, up and away! Imagine the look on your kids face when a simple helicopter that they built themselves takes flight for the first time.
011: Elastic Helicopters!
Have your child design and build their copter and then challenge them to see how high they can get it to fly.
What you need:
-Fit the plastic propeller onto to the tip of a craft stick
-Bend up a paper clip to just under a 90 degree angle
-Tightly tape the paperclip to the opposite end of the craft stick
-Design, cutout and tape a helicopter shape to the craft stick
-String (2) #33 rubber bands from the propeller and the paper clip
