Paper Rocket


They will zooom in front of your nose, chase you around the house and ultimately get lost behind furniture.

To make them you will need paper, glue, scotch tape and a plastic straw.
1. Decorate the paper.
2. Put glue on one of the longer edges. Then role the paper around a pencil starting from the opposite side.
3. Close the top of the rocket with scotch tape.
4. Insert a plastic straw and you are ready to go.

  9. So cute!

    I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience.
    FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials.

    Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!

  14. Funny. Our family has done this concept for years with straws when we get fast food. We tear one end and then shoot another member of the family with the paper wrapper.
