DIY Rocket and Jetpack
Discussing planets cannot be separated from astronout job. Ar watched video how the astronouts work in the outer space, how they walk and live there. I made a a jetpack for Ar following the instructions here. however, I did not use spray paint but acrylic paint. I have different way of painting the bottles.
used soda bottles
Some tissue, tear it
glue around the bottles
attach torn tissue one by one
dry the bottles under direct sunlight
paint them when they are dry
let the paint dry
attach felt accessories
For the rocket, I glued felt on cardboard paper first, then I attached them on the buttom four sides of the bottle. I added Ar's photo to personalize it. He helped me painting the bottles and could not wait to see how it looked.
He was overjoyed when he got his rocket and jet pack. He hold the rocket and ran around the house. Oops, he should pretended to walk slowly because he was on the moon. He knew that, but running is more hilarious than walking in slow motion.
Look, his cousin wanted to try the jet pack, too.
