This is one easy-to-realize idea – a big rocket that is good for decorating by the small kids. The rocket can stay upright. You just need a big piece of cardboard paper for the two parts of the rocket.
Based on my experience, I consider the IKEA’s cardboard packaging the best for such crafts – there are almost no notices, the cardboard is not very thick, and there is plenty of space with no folds.
Our cardboard was per-decorated but this wasn’t a hider for us to make our rocket. We cut the two parts. Because we have forgotten the fins, we attached them with the help of scotch tape.
We decorated the rocket with colored sheets of paper, added some fire at the base, and put together all the pieces.
Easy, simple, and eye-catching!
