CD Balloon Hovercraft Toy 1

Pin It

This is a cool CD balloon hovercraft toy. You can make this science experiment craft with a balloon, a CD, and a few other things around the house. It floats on a cushion of air like an air hockey game.


  • CD
  • 35mm film case with lid
  • balloon
  • drinking straw
  • electrical tape
  • scotch tape
  • sharp tool to poke a hole with
  • scissors
  • glue


  1. Poke a small hole in the bottom of the 35mm film case.
  2. Make a slightly larger hole in the film case lid, big enough for the straw to fit through.
  3. Cut a straw a few inches long and tape a balloon around the straw with electrical tape or other strong tape.
  4. Tape the film case over the hole in the CD. Secure with glue so no air comes out.
  5. Insert the balloon straw through the lid.
  6. Blow up the balloon and then put the lid on the film case and watch the CD float around.
