There are certain steps to follow when creating a balloon-powered car.

Step 1: Make the chassis.

Take a drinking straw and cut it into two pieces, according to the width of the water bottle. Poke two holes in the bottle on one side, which is the bottom of the balloon car. Slide the pieces through the holes.

Step 2: Make the jet.

Take a flexible straw and put it into a balloon. Use tape to attach the straw to the balloon to prevent the air from escaping.

Step 3: Assemble the car.

Add wheels to the chassis and insert the jet by poking two holes in the back and top of the bottle. Power the car by blowing up the balloon using the straw.
