Does anyone know how to make a hot-air balloon out of the small dixie cups? Maybe a site with directions? Need it for a kindergarden class. Thanks for any help

Deb, looks like you could punch holes in the rim of the cups; loop in some pipe cleaners; take another couple of pipe cleaners to form a circle (the base to put a balloon on). Glue the balloon in place; attaching it to a straw inside the dixie cup & there you go!

Here is a link that might be useful: Hotair balloon... sorta
