One minute science experiment

After reading my daughter's National Geographic Little Kids magazine with her yesterday, we decided to try the featured science experiment. I can't find the magazine now, of course, nor do they have this exact experiment online, so I'll attempt to explain it by memory. Hopefully, I can handle that since I'm 32 and the magazine is written for 3-6 year olds.
You fold a piece of construction paper in half and stand it up like a tent. Take in a big breath, then blow it out pretty forcefully through the tent. The paper should fall flat onto the table. The scientific explanation for why the tent falls is this: It requires a certain amount of air pressure to stand. When you force a burst of air through the tent, you change the pressure causing it to fall.
Simple but educational.
I really like reading a project idea with my kids that we can jump up and try that minute instead of having to prep for an hour only to see them interested and occupied for 5 minutes. Granted, this one only took about 1 minute to complete, but it was a satisfying process to be able to read it, suggest we try it and actually do it.
I wasn't fast enough to snap pictures of my daughter conducting the experiment, but I got my son. After he blew the tent down, he swiftly grabbed the nearest truck and conducted his own experiment by running over it.

To hone logic, supported with open minds and a lot to learn. For logic that is already extensive, balance it with humility

A mind that is positive cannot be controlled. For the purpose of occult dominion, minds must therefore be rendered passive and negative in order that control may be achieved.
