The great thing about throwing an Outer Space Party is that there are spheres-waiting-to-become-planets and cylinders-waiting-to-become-rockets everywhere! Gumballs, donut holes, paper lanterns and bouncy balls all become, you guessed it, planets. And soda bottles beckon to become rocket ships.

how to make soda bottle rocket ships

You will need: soda in glass bottles, silver tissue paper, washi tape or other tape, card stock

Directions: Get a soda bottle ready for blast-off with this diy rocket ship. Cut a length of silver tissue paper, a few inches tall. Fringe the bottom edge. Wrap around the bottom edge of the soda bottle and tape in place. Print out a cardstock bottle wrap (a little circle in the middle looks like a portal window). Wrap around the soda bottle, above the fringed silver paper. Then cut out a circle (a few inches in diameter), cut a slit from the outside edge to the center, and then overlap the cut edges (making a cone) and tape in place. Secure the cone to the bottle cap with tape. Done–ready for blast off!
