Smart Summer: Cardboard Roll Rocketships

We aren't really getting into Outer Space Week very well. The girls have not been in the mood to focus on activities very well and it's been a workout just to get through our daily necessities. I think the heat is getting to them, that or cabin fever since we haven't been able to spend much time outside at all. Either way, this week has already been a long one.

We did attempt to make these cardboard roll rocketships from Naturally Educational.

You don't need much in the way of supplies. Instead of using foam shapes we decided to color our aluminum foil with Sharpies. I'll take any excuse to use them, have I mentioned how much I love Sharpies?

I went with an alien spaceship and stars. How's that for some artistic talent? Ha.

Kinsley drew all the planets on hers.

I didn't get any good in progress shots because the alien space monster (aka Kaitlyn) was trying to destroy the rockets at every turn. Thankfully Naturally Educational has great step by step photos if you need them.
