Toilet Paper Roll Rocket

All little kids love space rockets! Some even dream of being an astronaut and flying in one to Mars! My alien spaceship paper plate craft is a huge hit with little kids, so I am sure they will love this paper rocket just as much!

While you are doing this activity get little kids to think about Space and what sort of things they might find there. They might want to talk about the different planets, stars, astronauts etc.  Maybe this craft might inspire them to make something else in the future. 

This is one of my simple toilet paper roll crafts for kids. My list of these is growing on what seems like a daily basis!

Step 2:

Stick the flame cutouts together, the small cutout on the medium cutout and then the medium cutout on the big cutout.

Stick the small round cutouts on the relatively big round cutouts; these are the windows of the rocket.

If you were really creative you could draw a smiley face on one of these windows to represent a happy astronaut traveling to Space.
