Pink Rocketship :)

Earlier this week while at music class my daughter got to pick a rocketship as we blasted off for exploring fun. Not a day has went by since without her asking to play with the pink rocketship again so we decided to build one together 🙂 This project has many creative possibilities and can be as simple or complex as you want.

Supplies Needed:

  • cardboard tube-any size from toilet paper to large shipping tube works
  • corrugated cardboard for fins
  • thin cardboard for tip of rocket (optional)
  • construction paper
  • tape
  • glue stick
  • scisssors
  • stickers, markers, paint, stamps etc. to decorate (optional)

Directions:

  1. Cut 3 fins out of the corrugated cardboard and decorate.
  2. Decorate the tube.
  3. Using thin cardboard or construction paper cut out a circle about twice the circumference of the tube.
  4. Cut a slit to center of circle and form a cone for the tip. Hint: You may need to trim to fit.
  5. Decorate cone then attach with tape or glue to the top end of tube.
  6. Cut 3 slits into bottom of tube for fins.
  7. Apply glue to end of fins then slide into slits and secure with tape if needed.
  8. Time to go exploring with your rocketship!

This will be a hit for all the little rocketship lovers in your family and offers endless possibilities 🙂

 

Please share your craft ideas as I am always looking for the next project.
