2 When they are dry glue the small ice block sticks across your 4 jumbo sticks. Glue one near the top and one near the bottom. This will hold them together.

3.Paint a piece of thin cardboard in Zoop De Loop. We used a piece of card from an old cereal box. This will become the triangle on top of your rocket so make sure it’s big enough to fit.

4. When the cardboard is dry cut out the triangle for the top and two circles for windows. We painted our circles with  Obelisk to give them a dark tinge.

5. Hot glue the triangle to the top of the rocket, and then glue a circle in the triangle and one onto the base of the rocket. I also glued on a smaller piece of pipe cleaner around the window just to make them pop.

6. Cut out 9 strips of pipe cleaners and glue them to the back of the rocket so it looks like fire coming out of the boosters.

7. If you have any stickers lying around pop something in the window. We found some funny alien stickers and stuck that in one of the windows of our rocket ship.
