Materials

Directions

To create a static electricity field, have your child run a comb through his hair a few times. Then experiment by picking up pieces of paper with the comb. Next, blow up the balloon and tie it. Rub the balloon a couple of times against your child's arm or leg. Next, put the balloon against the wall and note how it sticks there.
