Toys that work with air

We have really been enjoying learning about air.
Here are some toys that use air to make them work.
The monster and the mouse are pneumatic (trapped air) toys,
The helicopter, the hovercraft and the racing car use a pushing force (of air escaping from the balloon) to work.  We are planning to make some air toys at home ourselves.

These toys were really exciting.
We have also made some lovely swirling snakes.
Teacher has hung some over the radiator beside the window, and others in the middle of the class.
Teacher says they might behave a little strangely.
We can't wait to observe them properly on Monday and to try and figure out what is going on!
