Winter is the perfect time for a snowball fight, but some days it is just too cold to be outside. These indoor “snowball” shooters can be made with household items and will provide all the fun of a traditional snowball fight while letting you stay warm. Make one for every member of the family, and let the snowballs fly! Be sure to talk together about the science behind why this experiment works, and don’t be afraid to explore.
Note: If your balloon slips off your shooter, you may be pulling too hard. Try taping or gluing the balloon on the tube to secure it.
A lot of physics concepts apply to your snowball shooter. Physics is a branch of science that helps us understand matter, energy, and motion. Way back in 1687, Sir Issac Newton published his famous three laws of motion.
Your snowball shooter demonstrates all three laws of motion. What else can you apply them to?
