Space rocket craft activity


A good way to keep space mad boys busy on a wet day.

You will need:
A clean, empty water bottle, labels and lid removed
A paper plate
Tin foil, coloured paper etc. to decorate
Double sided sticky tape

1)Cut the rim off the paper plate and wrap it around the bottom of the bottle to form the foot of the rocket. Stick it in place with the tape.

2)Use the center of the plate to form the nose cone of the rocket by cutting a slit from the side to the middle and bending it round. Fix it in place at the open end of the bottle with the tape.

3)Decorate with the paint, coloured paper and tin foil.

4)Once dry, use the string to hang.
