Flying Tea Bag Easy Science Experiments for Kids Video


                                                  Flying Tea Bag

This video is about an easy science experiment called Flying Tea Bag Rocket. Since this experiment will be using fire, be sure you try this in a place where nothing can easily catch on fire and to have an adult with you to supervise. This video will be showing all the materials that are needed and the step by step instructions on how to do the experiment.

Materials Required: –

  • A paper cup
  • Tea bag
  • Scissors
  • Aluminium foil
  • Lighter

Procedure: –

  • Take the tea bag and cut it open to get the tea out of it.
  • Make sure you cut it straight and do not spill the things over.
  • All you have to do is unfold it opposite way in the opposite lines to make it a diamond-shaped cylinder.
  • This will help it to sit perfectly on the foil.
  • In the next step, take your lighter, and light it from either both the sides or just one side.
  • Watch it go down and there it goes, the flying tea bag.

Concept: –

When you light the top of the tea bag, the air inside this diamond-shaped cylinder gets heated. The air molecules start to move more quickly and spread out to take up more space. The air becomes less dense. It has enough force to lift the ash of the teabag. Hot air balloons use the same principle.
