Kids will have a blast (wink, wink) making this cute rocket Valentine craft. It’s an easy Valentine craft for kids that simple to make and only uses a few common supplies.
We’ve made this rocket craft in the classic colors or pinks and reds, but don’t let that limit your child’s creativity!

Valentine Rocket Craft
- Cardstock or construction paper
- Rocket template (enter your email in the form at the end of this post to have the link sent to you)
Download the rocket template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Position the tip at the top of the body of the rocket and glue it in place.
Glue the base just at the bottom of the body of the rocket.
Place the three hearts in the middle of the rocket body and glue them down.
Take the fins and glue them to the back and middle of the rocket body. Do this for both sides.
Build the flames by gluing the orange flames to the middle of the yellow flames. Next, glue the flames to the back of the rocket base.
We love how festive these Valentine rockets turned out!
