Blast off to fun!

 Last week, with some inspiration from Roylco, The Minimen and I thought rockets would be a fun thing to make.

It was super easy and so much fun. Here is how we did it.

We used toilet rolls, foil, coloured paper and sticky tape.

We fit one toilet roll into the other to make a long rocket body.

Covered them in foil.

Cut a circle from paper, cut into the centre of it to fold it around into a cone shape.

We cut some flames and other shapes for doors and windows and stuck them all on our rockets.

Ta-Da….A rocket.

The Minimen ran around the house playing rockets for quite a while.

I tried to get a photo of them playing but this blurry action shot was the best I could do.

This was a great project, and it ticked all the boxes for me on kids activities, cheap, quick, easy and engaging for multiple age groups, and it gave me a few peaceful moments to do a bit of crochet while they ran around with their rockets.

    This is so neat!! I love how you designed the little flame piece and the tin foil body gives it an awesome retro look. Love this!! 😀
