Today we made a rocket out of a recycled toilet paper roll! This is a cute craft for kids to do and they LOVE to play with them after they are done! All you will need is a toilet paper tube, orange/yellow construction paper, aluminum foil, scissors, and glue.
Start by gluing a piece of orange paper around the toilet paper roll. You can also paint it (that's more fun but takes longer!) Then cut a circle out of yellow paper and cut one slit to the middle.
Cut two strips of tin-foil and glue them on the bottom of the rocket.
Then cut a yellow triangle wider than the toilet paper roll. Cut two slits on the bottom of the toilet paper tube across from each other. The yellow paper will just slide into them.
After that it should be able to stand up by itself. Then cut out three small aluminum foil circles and glue them towards the top. Take the yellow circle and roll it into a cone, gluing it secure. The trickiest part about this rocket project is getting the top to stay on. You will need a lot of glue or tape! There you have a cool rocket ship to launch, you can also add red tissue paper out the end to make it look like it's flying as well.
