  • Step 1

    Tape three cardboard rolls together into a triangle and repeat with another three cylinders.

  • Step 2

    Wrap the cylinders in silver metallic paper making sure that one end is covered and the other end is left open. Tape the covered end into place.

  • Step 3

    Cut out a square from strong cardboard approximately 20cm x 20cm.

  • Step 4

    Cut four small slits into the edges of the square, two along the top at each end and two along the sides down the bottom.

  • Clever Tip

    You can make the slits using scissors or make lots of holes along the line using a large needle. Adult assistance required.

  • Step 5

    Cut two 50cm strips of calico for the jet pack straps.

  • Clever Tip

    You may like to finish the edges with stitching to prevent fraying or use some other type of strapping or ribbon.

  • Step 6

    Attach the straps to the slits in the cardboard square.

  • Clever Tip

    We stitched ours for a nice flat finish but you could also tie a knot or glue them.

  • Step 7

    Cut six strips of red crepe streamer 40cm each, six strips of orange 30cm and six strips of yellow 20cm.

  • Step 8

    Make two even groups of streamers and tape the top of each group.

  • Step 9

    Using masking tape, tape the streamers into a cylinder from each jet pack.

  • Step 10

    Glue the jet packs onto the cardboard square. Allow to dry. Then you are free to travel the world!
