Why it works?
Rubbing the balloon on your jumper or hair, charges it with static electricity, this attracts the frogs making them jump up to the balloon. They will stick until the charge wears off.
Does it still work if you use normal paper and cardboard?
Can you time how long the Frogs stay stuck for?
If you rub the balloon on your hair for longer do the frogs stick for longer?
Do smaller frogs stick for longer than bigger ones?
Other Static Electricity ideas
Inspiration Laboratories also has a very cool ghost static electricity activity.
If you take any videos or photos of you and your children doing any of our activities please share on G+ and tag us using #ScienceSparks. I’d love to see and share them around.
