Paper rockets are the best — they will zooom in front of your nose, chase you around the house and ultimately get lost behind furniture. They're also really easy to make, since you only need four items and the patience for four steps to complete.

What you need

How you do it

Step 1: Decorate the paper

Step 2: Put glue on one of the longer edges. Then role the paper around a pencil starting from the opposite side.

Step 3: Close the top of the rocket with Scotch tape.

Step 4: Insert a plastic straw and you are ready to go!

    • Noted! I'm definitely on the lookout for more easy DIY stuff. I'm always open to people sending links to cool stuff they see on blogs or Pinterest — I found this via Pinterest & just asked if I could run it. ­čÖé
