The children enjoyed making, decorating and flying their hot air balloons

In Pre-school one we have been making hot air balloons and due to the weather taking a windy turn we thought it would be perfect conditions in which to fly our hot air balloons.  We used a range of different materials to create different colours and patterns on our balloons using glue spreaders to stick them together.  We then took them outside to see if they would fly with the wind and they soared very high indeed!
