Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of being an astronaut. So I couldn’t be happier that we’re celebrating outer space this week on Moonfrye! Our super easy cardboard spaceship is the perfect way to plan a pretend visit to the stars. Or invite friends over for a rocket launch party!
What you will need:
Empty cardboard toilet paper rolls
Red and silver glitter
Blue sparkle paint (ours is Kid Made Modern, available at Target)
Red crepe paper
Step 1: Paint each toilet paper roll with two coats of glitter paint.
Step 2: Cut a circle out of the construction paper, roughly 3″ in diameter.
Step 3: Cut into the center of the circle, then fold one edge over the other to create a cone and glue in place.
Step 4: Paint the rim of the cardboard roll with glue and attach the paper cone.
Step 5: Cut 1″ inch strips of aluminum foil and wrap around the base of the tube, using a dab of glue to secure.
Step 6: Cut crepe paper into thin strips to create “flames” for your cardboard spaceship. Glue into the open end of the tube.
Step 6: Paint the paper cone with glue and sprinkle red and silver glitter on top.
Now you’re ready for blast off!
