Over lap one side that has been cut, over the other side, to make a cone shape.  Stick together with tape. This will be the top of the space rocket. Using tape, stick this top part on to the to end of the toilet paper roll.
Step 3

Scrunch up red, yellow and orange tissue paper to make flames, that will come out of the bottom end of the rocket.  To make it extra secure, put some glue inside the ‘rocket’ base.

You can change this craft to suit what materials you have.

For example, if you want you can paint the toilet paper roll, instead of using aluminum foil.

Adding on stickers if you have them to decorate with is a nice variation too.
