Recently, I found a pack of balloons leftover from a birthday party. Knowing we would use them in the fall for our homeschool curriculum, I placed them with our school things. The only problem? My kids found the balloons. Instead of just blowing them up and letting them play keep-away from each other I set them up with some science experiments to keep them busy.
