Preschool Craft: Toilet Paper Roll Rocket

Here's What You'll Need:

  • Empty Toilet Paper Roll
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • 3-4 Small triangles of carboard (ours are from an empty mac n' cheese box)
  • Contruction paper circle
  • Stickers and paint (oprional)
Here's How To:
  • Cut a small circle out of construction paper. Cut a slit from the edge to the center. Fold it in, so it make a cone shape (this is your top). Staple it or tape it shut.
  • Cut 3-4 triangles out of cardboard. Cut a slit in each and slide them on the edge of toilet paper roll.
  • Tape (or glue if you want) the cone shaped top to the roll.
  • Paint and adhere stickers if desired! 

*I prepped all the pieces and let my preschooler assemble and decorate it.
