Paper Plate Rockets

Pin It

While we're looking at fireworks this week we decided to make some rockets with paper plates and cardboard tubes. The kiddos love any project that involves felt-pens and I thought this was a good time to do some exploring with 3d shapes. They had to work on steadying the tube with one hand and colouring with the other - of course their little hands were covered in colour by the time we'd finished!

I made a sparkly one by covering it with foil - because of course I can't let the kiddos have all the fun - then stuck the pieces together with double sided tape and added a sparkly tinsel trail. They are hanging up in our window like real fireworks.
