Making a device to burst Ballons


String, small garden canes, candles (one per Six), string plastic cups (one per Six) matches (4 in a box)

(Possibly masking tape and /or elastic bands)


Attach one balloon per six to one side of the room. Cubs have to burst the balloon using only the equipment provided. You will need to establish an area
that the Cubs are not allowed to enter. Give all the Sixes 25 – 30 minutes to build their bursting device. When the time is up each Six takes it in turn to try and burst their balloon.
