Father’s Day Rocket Craft
Creating a Father’s Day Rocket Craft for Dad extends a child’s learning and using alternative material to create artwork. It will help to develop hand-eye coordination and concentration
What you will need:
- Star stickers (optional – you can also use white crayons)
- Letters (optional)
- Google eyes
- Felt paper in different colors (black, yellow, orange and red)
- Card or foam paper (optional)
- For the rocket use a ready template or cut out the patterns, that are simple and geometric.
- Trace the patterns on a red felt paper.
- Cut a round cutout and glue it on the front side of the card. These are the rocket window. Optional you could glue the child’s photo on the rocket ship window.
- Stick the triangle on the top end of the front side of the card and the trapezium shape on the bottom side of the card.
- Cut the two small triangles and stick them on the sides of the rocket card.
- Stick the small flame pattern on the middle of the big flame pattern. Glue the flame on the bottom side of the rocket card.
- Peel off star stickers and place them around the rocket ship on your felt paper or card. As an alternative, children can draw stars around their paper with a white crayon or white colored pencil.
- Cutout a moon shape and add a google eye on it or draw it with the black pencil.
- If you have letters write a message for Father’s Day (optional)
Have fun with this activity and we recommend adult supervision at all times.
