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.
Glue and duct tape the 2 boxes together using the overlapping flaps.
Tape the sides of the boxes together.
Tape the roof together to make the rocket shape.
So my little one could join in the project I cut our some cardboard stars for her to paint as decorations. (And yes she is eating paint in this picture!)
Now decorate your rocket and fly to the moon!
