Make a space ship

Things you’ll need:

  • A pLastic Bottle
  • Cardboard (Perhaps from a cereal box)
  • Scissors
  • Paints or felt tip pens
  • Glitter glue or sticky tape
  • Our downloadable space ship “Stickers” (See Below)

How to make it:

  1. Cut out a big half circle from your piece of card.
  2. Form it into a cone and stick it to the bottom of the plastic bottle with tape or glue (the bottle opening will make a brilliant exhaust pipe).
  3. For wings, cut out two triangle shapes from your card and stick them to the sides of the bottle.
  4. Download our space ship “stickers” and stick them on too.
  5. Finishing decorating the space ship with pens, paint or glitter (or all three).
