1 Empty toilet tissue roll
One strip bright hot pink construction paper, cut 2-inches in width
Glue gun
Glue sticks
Thin dowel rod
Red, white and blue curled ribbon gift bow
Red and blue glittered sticky tape (we found ours at our local dollar store)
Decorative glitter stars


Starting at the bottom of the empty roll, attach the red sticky tape diagonally until reaching the top of the roll. Cut the tape slightly above and below each end of the roll and fold over on the inside.
Repeat with the blue sticky tape, filling in the empty spaces between the red tape.
Glue the dowel rod to the inside of the empty roll.
Take the construction paper strip and fold into a peak for the top of the rocket.
Glue the rocket peak to the top of the roll.
Glue the curled ribbon gift bow to the inside of the bottom of the roll, leaving the curls hanging outside of the roll.
Decorate your rocket as desired with the glitter stars.
