Simple Hovercraft Programme idea

Simple programme idea for a section night.

You will need (per person)

  • An old/useless cd
  • A sports cap from a drinking bottle
  • A balloon
  • Either 8″ of duct tape or a hot glue gun

Simply stick or glue the sports cap over the hole of the cd, ensuring there are no gaps on the top end of the cd.

Blow up the balloon and place it over the sports cap whilst it’s in the closed position. That should give you something like this :

When the cap is raised your Hovercrafts will float on a cushion of air. When the air runs out the Hovercraft will stop dead. Why not try making an obstacle course for races?

Check out the videos for a close run and a winning run!

Dan is a Scouter in Sheffield and the very proud leader of Norfolk District Explorers. When not running the Explorers, he also runs the group website, is the Assistant GSL, County Brand Adviser, Exec Member and Young Leader Co-Ordinator. Somewhere in the middle of all that he finds time for a full time job, wife and daughter. Dan and Becki met through Scouting together and she is more understanding than most about the adventures and mud!
