CARDBOARD BOX ROCKET

Cardboard box kids play rocket

We love using recycled materials in our crafts and after moving house we have a lot of boxes so we decided to make a rocket!

MATERIALS: 2 large cardboard boxes (ideally the same size), Duct tape, craft knife, glue, paint to decorate.

TUTORIAL: Flatten out your 2 boxes and cut off the top and bottom flaps leaving a small flap to attach the 2 boxes together. With a craft knife cut out your door shape and windows. In the second box cut the triangle shapes to form the roof. I usually turn my boxes inside out to give a clean canvas for decorating.
