ZOOM! Make your own paper rockets in four super easy steps #How-To & DIY#big kids#diy Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jul 13 2012) Guest post by Aleksandra Photo by Aleksandra. 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 Scotch tape Paper Glue Plastic straws 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!
