This Kids Should See This + Make a Hot Air Balloon

I've recently found this site called The Kids Should See This.  It's a great site with images and videos that kids would love and become inspired by.  They have found a lot of amazing videos that would fit into any of your themes or just something cool to show the kids as a reward or a way to get the crowd calmed down.  You can subscribe to the site and they will send you a weekly email with lots of fun!

One of the awesome videos that I've found on the site is this one about Hot Air Balloons.  It talks about the science behind them and shows you how to easily make your own with 2 garbage bags and a hair dryer.  Neat project the kids will be amazed by!
