How to make balloon car

CC0
Internet Archive:

Materials: three balloons; an air pump and scissors.
We are going to use one balloon to make the body of the car and two balloons to make the wheels. Inflate the purple (or any other color of your choice) balloon leaving a two—inch flat tail to make the body of the car (Pic 1).

Twist the first soft six—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the fist bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3).

Twist the second soft two—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 5).

Twist the third eight—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Twist the fourth eight—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the third and the fourth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 8).

Twist the fifth ten—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock the free end of the fifth bubble between the third and the fourth bubble (Pic 10). You have to pull the end of the balloon through the loop of the two (the third and the fourth) bubbles.

Twist the sixth soft five—inch bubble. The size of the sixth bubble could be different. Just make sure to have the 7th up to two—inch bubble at the very end of the balloon (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 12).

The seventh bubble represents a driver. So, you have to put it inside of the car. Also we can shape the car by forcing the front end of the fifth bubble half way between the third and the fourth bubble. We have made the body of the car (Pic 13 through 16).




We are going to use one balloon to make a set of two wheels. Inflate balloons leaving a three—inch flat tail (Pic 17).

Twist the first soft seven—inch bubble (Pic 18).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 19).

Twist the soft three—inch bubble (Pic 20).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 21).

Force the second bubble half way through the loop of the first bubble (Pic 22 and 23). We made the first wheel.


Twist the third soft two—inch bubble (Pic 24).

Lock both ends of the third bubble in one lock twist (Pic 25 and 26). The third bubble helps to hold the wheel in a fixed position.


Twist the fourth two—inch bubble (Pic 27).

Twist the fifth soft two—inch bubble (Pic 28).

Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 29).

Twist the sixth two—inch bubble (Pic 30).

Twist the seventh soft two—inch bubble (Pic 31).

Lock both ends of the seventh bubble in one lock twist (Pic 32). The seventh bubble helps to hold the second wheel in a fixed position.

Twist the eighth soft three—inch bubble (Pic 33).

Lock both ends of the eighth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 34).

Twist the ninth soft seven—inch bubble (Pic 35).

Lock both ends of the seventh bubble in one lock twist (Pic 36). The rest of the balloon is the tenth bubble.

Cut off the tenth bubble and tie off the end. Force the eighth bubble half way through the loop of the ninth bubble (Pic 37 through 39). We have made one set of two wheels.



Use the second balloon to make the second set of wheels (Pic 40). You can make sets of different size wheels for the front and for the rear of the car.

Attach the wheels to the car body. Let’s start with the front of the car. Lock the fifth brown bubble with the second purple bubble (Pic 41 through 43). Fix the fifth brown bubble at the bottom of the car.



Attach the second set of wheels to the rear of the car in the same fashion (Pic 44 through 48). Congratulations, you have made the car. This is a racing car. There are many modifications we can make for this car: size of the wheels, different front/back, color and etc. Also, you may check out previously published instruction a jeep (car 1). Have fun and happy twisting :)
