After visiting a museum, my toddler became fascinated with rockets. This is a fun craft to do with your toddler/child with items you already have at home.

Your child can paint the rocket, but mine opted to stick on stickers instead. He uses his imagination and pretends he's flying around in space around the house. This is more of an adult craft to design and cut, but decorating is up to your child.

Total Time: 15-20 minutes

  3. First, I freehand drew a rocket design on regular paper to see if it would fit before actually tracing it onto a piece of white thin cardboard. Once, you are able to draw your rocket, cut it out with scissors.

My son loves making rocket-ships, helicopters, and plane crafts! This is another paper rocket-ship version we made together. It is very easy to make and fun for your child to play with!
