If the #Easter weekend brings rain, it doesn’t mean kids can’t go on an adventure. By following these simple steps they can even explore as far as outer space!  Now, we can’t promise this homemade rocket ship – constructed entirely from household items – meets exact NASA specifications, or is durable enough to survive re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere, but we’re sure it will fire your kids’ imaginations. #EasterTogether

Water Rocket: The combination of water, compressed air, and a plastic soda bottle serves as a great source of propulsion for a water rocket. Alternate way (without tape) to fix up those water bottle rockets.

Plastic bottle rocket...as a piggy bank! This would be perfect for learning about the space coast. We would need to paint the bottles white with acrylic paint ahead of time, then let them decorate them with permanent markers and paper. This way we could teach them how every rocket ship that goes into space takes a lot of money to fly, and they tell us when their ship is full of coins. When they do, we'll have a space party.

Bottle Rockets - Simple and Fun Summer STEM

I made these with the summer camp kids and they were a blast! Note to self: do not let them put glitter in the water next time! (Or do and be prepared to be covered in glitter from head to toe)
