Flying Rocketship Craft – Space Craft

Blast off to the moon with our super fun and easy to make Flying Rocketship craft for kids! This space craft will capture the imaginations of kids’ both big and small. With the introduction of a simple pulley system to create the impression of flight into space; children can craft, learn and play with their flying creations!

We love interactive paper crafts. They’re immersive, fun to make and enhance learning. Our rocketship template makes this craft especially easy for young children, who will engage their fine motor skills in cutting, painting and sticking throughout the process of assembling their space craft. The pulley system adds another dimension to paper crafting that gently introduces children into STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) – as children are busily exploring their creativity, they will also be learning!

Our flying rocketship craft forms part of a growing series of flying paper crafts for kids, which also includes the 3D Hot Air Balloon and 3D Flying Kite.
