Every week during the school holidays Staedtler are setting a crafty challenge and the winner will become the next member of the Try-it Tribe. More information can be found on their Facebook page. This weeks challenge is to create a game which can be played whatever the weather. As a member of the Try-it Tribe we were sent a bundle of craft supplies and had great fun making straw rockets.
Equipment needed to make straw rockets:
Gel crayon pens from Staedtler
How to make straw rockets:
Cut your paper into rectangles at least 3 x 5 inches. We cut 6 for my son and 6 for my daughter, then they decorated then using the colourful gel crayon pens from Staedtler.
I got both my children to stand at the edge of the patio and blew down the straw to make the rocket part fly off.
They had great fun seeing who could make their straw rocket fly. They are easy to pop back on the straw and have another try. You can play this inside too, try making a target or given them a container to aim at!
