  • Okay. How about a crazy way of popping a balloon? Such as line up dominos, at the end of the chain put a hot wheels car with a needle taped to the front of it...so...when the last domino falls, it knocks the car, and the car runs into the balloon and pops it.

    Kind of silly but easy and inexpensive.

  • Or you could put the car onto a small ramp so when the domino knocks the car it will roll down a little ramp (pick up enough speed) and pops the balloon.
