Supplies: 
  • 2 Large cups the same size
  • 2 rubber bands
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Drawing of a Rocket Ship cut to the height of large cup.
Instructions: 
  1. Take a cup and cut four evenly spaced slits in the rim.
  2. Cut two rubber bands into strings. Tie a knot at each end of each rubber band. Place them in the slits and stretch them so they are taut and criss-cross each other.
  3. Put a piece of tape over each slit on the inside so that the cup does not continue to tear.
  4. Take your Sproutlet’s drawing of a rocket ship and tape it to the side of the cup with the rubber bands.
  5. To launch the rocket, place the cup with the rocket drawing over the other cup and press down. Let go quickly and see the cup blast off!
