Rocket ~Bostik Bloggers 2017


The month of June has brought a heatwave to the UK and we have been melting as temperatures soar. During the hot weather we have been enjoying lots of ice creams, our favorite at the moment is mango and strawberry. On Sunday Little M my niece, came over and as a refreshing treat we enjoyed some strawberry popsicles.


We always time Little M visits so that she can do some crafting with me with the Bostik Box, the theme for the month of June was Space. After looking through the box Little M and I decided to make some rockets.


You will need:

Cardboard tube (Empty toilet roll)
Gold Card
Pink Card
Blue and Green foil paper
Scissors
Bostik Glue
Scissors

How to make Rockets:

1. Using a plate as a guide draw a 4 inch circle on the blue shiny paper and cut it out.
2. Cut the circle in half and make a cone shape with one of the halves and secure with the glue.


3.Cut out a rectangle from the pink card so that it fits around the cardboard tube.
4. Stick the pink card around the tube and secure with bostik glue.


5. Stick the blue cone on top of the pink tube to make the top of the rocket..
6. Cut 4 slits each  approx 1 inch long at 12 o clock, 3 o clock , 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions.
7. Make the base if the rocket by drawing the shape shown in the picture. Cut 2  pieces from gold paper.


8. Cut slits two slits as shown in diagram and slot the two rocket bases into each other to make a base.
9. Slot thee rocket base into the pink tube into the previously cut slits.
10. Cut out 3 small 1 cm squares to make windows and slick them on the pink tube.


This craft is suitable  for young children although adult supervision may be required for using scissors.

Being part of the Bostik 2017 bloggers with Tots100 and Merrily Crafts, I was sent some craft items in a box to create this project.

  1. Rocket making brings back school day memories. I used to make rockets with my students but somehow we never got to the stage of making the base(tail end):).. I guess no one misses it.
