I have set myself a challenge this week, since we are home on school holidays, to make a daily invitation to creative play for my children.
For day 1, I set this challenge to build a Lego balloon car. The idea is from Frugal Fun for Boys Lego Fun Friday challenge. The inspiration for the Lego balloon car (and photo I printed to show my sons) is from the Crafty Mummy.
This is what my eldest son came up with first. It worked, but was slow and did not travel far.
He decided the car must be too heavy and worked to lighten the load. We also tried a few different sorts of wheels. This is version two, which travels further and faster.
