I love taking household materials
and re-purposing them into something fun. Toilet paper or
paper towel rolls can be used to make so many fun things. This
week, we used them to make rockets! I've seen this craft so many
times, so we finally sat down to make one. My son loved flying it
around the house and I'm sure we'll make more with different types
of paper and ribbon for him to take outside.
Paper towel or toilet paper roll
Hot glue gun
Hot glue construction paper around the toilet paper roll.
Cut strips of ribbon and hot glue them along the inside of the
toilet paper roll. If you really want your rocket to take
off, you can curl the ribbon for added effect.
Cut a circle out of construction paper, cut a slit halfway up
the middle, twist together to form a cone and glue in place.
Three simple steps and you have your very own rocket!
