1. Cut a 4-inch square out of the cardboard. Cut the four corners to make an octagon.
2. Draw a ¼-½" diameter circle in the center of the cardboard. Use a pen to score the edge of the circle and punch it out. (A Crayola® marker has a perfect diameter.)
3. Glue the octagonal cardboard piece to the open end of the cup. Glue it securely to form an airtight seal between the cardboard and the cup. Let the glue dry.
4. Make a cardboard tube: cut another cardboard piece into a rectangle (approx. 3½" x 2"). Roll this piece to form a 3½"x¼" diameter tube. Use masking tape to tightly seal the entire length of the seam.
5. Punch a hole in the bottom of the cup large enough for the cardboard tube to fit snuggly (as airtight as possible).
6. Insert the tube into the opening of the balloon. Tape the balloon 1" from the end of the tube. Make sure the seal made with the tape is airtight.
7. Blow up the balloon (through the tube) and twist or pinch off the end to keep the air from escaping. Place the open end of the tube into the hole in the cup's bottom.
8. Set the hovercraft on a level, smooth surface. Release the air from the balloon so that it flows into the tube.
9. Blow the balloon up again, release and this time gently push your hovercraft.
