Are you a maker?  I am.

Our first project at the MakerSpace Workshop at DHF was a CD Hover Craft.

Our materials included a hot glue gun, glue sticks, a cd, a balloon, and a pull top bottle lid.  I started by gluing the bottle top to the CD around the hole in the CD.  Once that was secure and cooled I placed a balloon over the pull top on the CD and proceeded to blow air into the balloon.  I hit a little snag.  My balloon would not hold air long enough to hover.  I decided to add more glue around the lid and the cd.  I blew the balloon again and blew out the glue that had not totally cooled.  Another air leak!  :)  I reglued and waited for it to cool this time.  Success!

Although it was technically a success it was also a fail. I went a little overboard adding the extra glue so it was a little too heavy to hover. Lesson learned by having fun.
