Inside: Kids will have a blast making this easy paper** rocket craft**.

A while ago, before the holiday season, we shared a few space activities for kids. We planned on sharing all the activities that week, but you guessed it, we got sidetracked by all the festivities!

If you didn’t see the previous activities we showed you how to make learning fun with** these solar system flashcards** and we let our creativity lead with** these free printable space coloring pages**.

Today we’re sharing a simple, but fun rocket ship craft for kids that they’re going to love.

It’s a great art project for kindergarten or elementary aged kids and fits perfectly in with space unit themes.

Read on below to see how to make this craft with your kids or students.
