Salt, pepper, static

Mix salt and pepper in a dish. Inflate a balloon and rub it on a sweater (or some other surface to create static). Ask your child to SLOWLY lower the balloon just above the dish. Watch as the pepper sticks. Why does this happen? Because salt is heavier than pepper. How cool, huh!
