Rocket Straws

Printer-friendly version

The other day I was browsing Pinterest for a fun activity to do with our LM.   I hit the jackpot when I found this post on how to make Rocket Straws.

To start, seal an empty envelope, then draw lines as shown. Invite your child to cut along the lines (or help him with this step, if necessary). The corner of the envelope will form the top of the rocket.

 Next, cut off the bottom.

 Then use tape to seal up the sides of the rocket. Leave the bottom edge open.

Invite your child over to decorate her rocket!! Added bonus points for wearing rose-colored glasses. Super groovy & stylish, yes?

You can tape on strips of tissue paper streamers too!

Insert the straw into the bottom of the rocket, and go outside for launch time!! A short quick puff of air is all it takes for these to take flight!
