Leaf Blower Hovercraft

Have you ever dreamed of building your own flying machine, kid makers?

Learn to make a leaf blower hovercraft with kid maker Ethan and his assistant, maker Matthew Beckler of Wayne and Layne. It’s cheap, SO EASY and can even lift the weight of an adult. We can’t wait for you to try it yourself.

    This is a great project! I just built on in about 5 hours this past weekend and it works great! I will take this and try to “Enhance” it or make one bigger. I wish it worked in the grass though. My kids LOVE IT! I’ll be using this for my son’s birthday party to give the kids rides LOL!

    • Alan, we’re so excited that you built it! Next, you should try our original project, drill-powered skateboard. Then you could really throw a party! Stay tuned to our site for more project ideas coming soon.
