Making a Recycled Rocketship - finished rocketship with stickers added to foil coveringThis would be a fun craft time activity if your toddler is into rocketships! We were able to make this craft with supplies we had at home. It was fun to make together and he had a blast playing with his new creation and to more days of playing!


If you do not have space stickers, you could use any other stickers you have or draw images on paper, cut out, and tape on instead. Also, instead of using foil, you could spray paint and paint them on.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • aluminum foil
  • piece of scrap cardboard
  • hot glue
  • bottle
  • construction paper
  • stickers
  • gel pen (pen, paint, marker, or crayons)
