I kind of loved this project because it reminded me of the class projects I did when I was in preschool. I found the process of cutting, pasting and painting really relaxing and fun. Rowan was more of a cheerleader/militant dictator on this one, ordering me around to get it done as fast as possible. Once done, he loved it. He has been flying it around all week. He even ordered me to make more when he broke the first one I did.
UPCYCLED ROCKET FLYER
You will need:
Toilet tissue Roll
2 4” by 2” Cardboard Rectangles
4” inch circle of Kraft Paper
4 Strips of Red Tissue Paper
First cut a slit in the middle of the 4 inch circle and form in into a cone shape. Cut a small hole in the top of the cone.
Lace the string through the hole and tie a knot on the end. Then tape the cone to the tope of the toilet tissue roll.
Cut slits on both pieces of cardboard so that they fit together and form an X. Line up the toilet roll with the X and mark the spots where you will be cutting slits so that the rocket top fits on the rectangle squares.
Paint the all of the parts. Then tape tissue paper to the bottom of the rocket.
Tie string to the long stick and get ready to fly.
