Ski Jumping Straw Rocket

Download Activity Guide
See who can launch their ski jumper the furthest with our Ski Jumping Straw Rockets!
  • Step 11. Download and print out the template provided. Cut around the template pieces and set aside. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Colour your skier in your favourite colours or in green and yellow to look like our Australian Winter Olympians!
  • Step 22. Roll up the rectangles in the direction on the template pieces to form two straws and secure with sticky tape. Make sure the shorter straw can fit over the end of the longer straw. Tape up one end of the longer straw so no air can get through.
  • Roll the longer straw around a pencil to make it easier to roll.
  • Step 33. Use glue or sticky tape to stick your ski jumper to the shorter straw. Allow to dry if needed. The head of the ski jumper should be facing the taped end of the straw.
  • : You can use straws rather than make your own paper straws if you prefer!
  • Step 44. Place the shorter straw on the end of the longer straw. Blow as hard as you can to launch your ski jumper and see how far they can jump!
