Color and enhance it utilizing crayons or pens and stickers (may very well be footage on the exercise sheet to chop out and stick on?). You’ll be able to enhance the rocket anyway you need – aluminium foil makes for excellent particulars.

Now make the rocket’s prime and stabilisers

Lower a slit in your paper circle and wrap it right into a cone form on your rocket/ spaceship. That is the rocket “nostril” or rocket cone prime. I’m not actually certain what it’s name! Ha. Use sticky tape or glue to repair it to the tip of your rocket.

4. Lower a triangle out. Fold the perimeters and glue to the facet of the rocket!

5. Lower some lengths of parcel ribbon (grownup may curl it utilizing scissors) or tissue paper strips – it is a nice positive motor exercise for preschoolers. Stick the ‘hearth’ to the opposite finish of your firework rocket utilizing tape or glue.

6. Lastly, make a gap alongside the highest of the rocket (in the direction of the ‘nostril’ finish) , then thread with string so you may dangle it within the window.
