Discover a whole new world as you set off on your space adventure! Strap on your awesome jet pack and start imagining. There is no limit to the places you can go!
Tape three cardboard rolls together into a triangle and repeat with another three cylinders.
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.
Cut out a square from strong cardboard approximately 20cm x 20cm.
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.
You can make the slits using scissors or make lots of holes along the line using a large needle. Adult assistance required.
Cut two 50cm strips of calico for the jet pack straps.
You may like to finish the edges with stitching to prevent fraying or use some other type of strapping or ribbon.
Attach the straps to the slits in the cardboard square.
We stitched ours for a nice flat finish but you could also tie a knot or glue them.
Cut six strips of red crepe streamer 40cm each, six strips of orange 30cm and six strips of yellow 20cm.
Make two even groups of streamers and tape the top of each group.
Using masking tape, tape the streamers into a cylinder from each jet pack.
Glue the jet packs onto the cardboard square. Allow to dry. Then you are free to travel the world!
