Create your own space adventures. This recycled rocket takes you out of this world---fast!
Ever wished you could travel in outer space? Use your imagination to build a Rocket to Outer Space. Make several different ones for a whole fleet!
Choose a recycled cardboard tube. Cut it to the length you want for your rocket with Crayola® Scissors.
Use Crayola Gel Markers to fill plain paper with colors. Make random marks to show your rocket whooshing through space. Or draw replicas of rockets you know about.
Cut the paper to fit your tube. Use Crayola Glue Sticks to attach it.
Cut a rocket cone from aluminum foil or metallic paper. Glue the cone edges together. Glue the cone to the rocket with Crayola School Glue. Stand up to dry.
To create fins, cut several slits in the bottom edge of your rocket. Cut triangular wedges from metallic paper or aluminum foil. Insert them into the slits and glue in place.
For a smoky trail, add a few chenille stems to another slit in the base of your rocket. Wrap them around a crayon to curl. Remove the crayon. If you prefer, use fluffed cotton balls for smoke.
Decorate the outside of your Rocket to Outer Space with Crayola Glitter Glue for a sparkly effect. Dry.
You're ready to blast off! Which galaxy will it be today?
