Kitchen roll rocket craft!

This rocket craft was one of those spontaneous ones where my preschooler nabbed some recycling and decided he would make it into a rocket! Well who am I to stop his inner creator?! For this he used 4 kitchen towel holders glued together as in the picture above, and then some spare cardboard to make some little martians (these later got incorporated into the rocket).

Once the glue had dried, he then covered the the rolls in foil, and stuck some orange tissue paper out the bottoms to be the flames coming out of the rocket.

Simple, but I think pretty effective! I did ask him if he wanted to further decorate the body of the rocket, but the creative juices had finished for the day and he wanted a more minimalistic approach. So there we go. Our rocket!

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
