How to Make a Flying Rocket Ship

Blast off into the world of crafting fun! If you're looking for a fun craft to entertain your space-loving kids with, the Flying Rocket Ship is for you! 
  • 1 Paint cone

    Paint your cone and set it aside to let dry. 

  • 2 Cover tube

    Cut a piece of your glitter Core'dinations paper to fit around the tube and attach using your Hercules tape. 

  • 3 Attach rocket wings

    Cut two 3" x 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" triangles from the Foamie sheets. Cut these triangles in half to make 4 right triangles. Use your Hercules tape to stick both sets back to back, and glue the triangle-shaped fins on opposite sides of the rocket. 

  • 4 Attach cone to body

    Glue the inside rim of the cone to one end of the rocket body. 

  • 5 Add rocket flames

    Stick a strip of Hercules tape along the bottom inside rim of the rocket. Attach pieces of red and gold shred along the rim. 

  • 6 Embellish with glitter tape

    Embellish the rocket as you'd like using rhinestones and glitter tape. 

  • 7 Add Rexlace

    Cut a 2" piece of straw and glue it along the edge of one of the fins and the body. Cut about a 5' piece of Rexlace and insert through straw. Hold both ends and tilt up and down to let your rocket fly!
