What you will need
- Clag Kids PVA Glue
- Bostik Glitter Glue
- Bostik Blu Stik
- Bostik Glu Tape
- Bostik Blu Tack
- Printed Template
- A4 Coloured card: Fins x1 Cone x1
- A4 Coloured paper: Rocket Body x 1 (sheets)
- Cardboard Roll (or paper towel roll, plastic wrap roll etc. cut to desired size)
- Greylead pencil
- Craft knife
Step 1: PRINT TEMPLATE
Print the template and find a clean surface to work on. Make sure you have everything you need.
Step 2: CREATE THE ROCKET BASE
Cut a piece of coloured paper to the same height as the roll. Make sure it is long enough to wrap around the roll and overlap a little at the end. Use the Blu Stik and glue it to the roll. Ask a parent to cut four 2cm long slits (using the craft knife) at one end on the roll. The slits should be spaced evenly around the edge.
Step 3: MAKE THE TOP AND FINS
Blu Tack the cone template to a piece of coloured paper. Cut around the template. Once cut out, remove the template and Blu Tack. Do the same with the fins. Trace a 20 cent piece 3 times on some coloured card to create the windows. Cut out.
Step 4: PUT TOGETHER
Align the slits on each fit and fit together. Then insert the fins into the slits at the bottom of the roll. Glue on the 3 windows with the Blu Stik. Apply Glu Tape to the tab on the cone, roll and attach to form a cone. Then put Clag Kids PVA glue along the top edge of the roll and place the cone on top. Leave to dry.
