It's Electric!

Inflate a few regular balloons, and show your child how to rub it on his shirt or hair. Now show him, in a mirror, what happens when he holds the balloon close to — but not touching — his hair. It stands up! Explain that it’s the electrical charge that makes his hair “attracted” to the balloon. Rub again and try to stick the balloon to a wall.
