Balloon Jets turn into Balloon Archery

I’m still working through the Alphabet Challenge (read more here, here, or here).  Letter J was supposed to be for jets- balloon style.  I thought we’d blow them up, stand behind a line, and *try* to launch them into or near the empty flower pot. 
 While this did make us laugh, it didn’t work. 
At one point, my son even tried throwing it in as it deflated. That didn’t work either. 
What did work?  Aiming the balloons archery style.  Just pull it back, and let it fly.  This was much more effective, but it just didn’t make the cut for J Day.  I’m not worried about it.  It gave us about 30 minutes of fun outside.  Plus, it’s another example that things don’t always work out, and that’s okay.  
What’s your favorite balloon activity?  Watching your kids turn red trying to blow one up?  Yeah? Me too! :)
