Straw Rockets

Straw Rockets

What I Used:

(1)  Print and cut out rocket from template.  We used cardstock and had very good luck with these staying sturdy after significant use.

(2)  Cut wider straw into small lengths, closing one end with clear tape.

(3)  OPTIONAL: place undecorated cardstock rocket, wider straw piece, thin straw, and glue dot in clear party bag.  Fold one end of bag over and secure with instructions label printed on sticker paper.  Use as favors, set out with crayons, etc.  Feel free to use our sign here.
