4th of July Toilet Paper Roll Rocket Craft

Pin It
4th of July Toilet paper roll rockets are easy and fun to make. Remember the key colors are red, white, and blue. Don't forget the stars.

Materials:

  • toilet paper roll
  • red, white, and blue paints
  • brushes
  • red, white, and blue construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • stickers or other decorating materials

Directions:

  1. Depending on the paint, it might look better to cover the toilet roll in white paper and fold down the excess into the roll and then paint over that.
  2. Paint or otherwise decorate your toilet paper roll.
  3. Cut a small half circle or a 3/4 circle out from colored paper. Twist the paper into a cone and tape in place. A half circle makes a taller cone, a 3/4 circle makes a wider cone.
  4. Glue or tape the cone to the top.

Variations:
  • You can glue or tape strips of red and yellow tissue paper to the bottom for fire.
  • Put a string through the cone and hang up.
  • Tape a straw or dowel inside to make a handle.
  • Tie a small bag of candy, stuff it inside the rocket, and give them as party favors at your Independence Day Party.
