- Paper tubes. Toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls work great
- Colored or patterned card stock
- Yellow and orange tissue paper
- Paints – we prefer acrylic paint
- Glue and tape
1.) Paint your rocket
2.) Cut a circle out of card stock – Draw round a coaster or small plate to cut a circle of card. Then make a cut from one side to the center of your circle.
3.) Make a rocket nose – Make a cone from your circle of card to form the rocket nose. Tape or glue it in place.
4.) Attach your rocket to your rocket nose – Now attach the nose to your rocket. This is a little bit fiddly. A glue gun works well or you can use sellotape to secure it in place.
5.) Add some windows – Cut two small circles from your colored or patterned card stock and glue them onto the tube of your rocket to make the windows.
6.) Add flames – Cut strips of yellow and orange tissue paper.
7.) Glue on the tissue paper flames – Add a little bit of glue on top of your tissue paper strips and stick them to the inside of your tube to make flames. Your rocket is all ready to launch into space.
