good2grow Bottle Rocket

Looking for a fun activity and a new way to upcycle your good2grow bottles? You’re in luck! Our bottle rockets are the perfect craft for an out of this world day! We’re excited to present our first Craft Corner, hosted by Lucia Peters of LULUMAKE.

Supplies:

good2grow bottle and lid

1 toddlers sock (preferable size 2T-3T)

Hot glue

White Cardboard/ watercolor paper

Felt

Aluminum Foil

Hole puncher

Scissors

Yarn (yellow, red and orange)

Tape

Directions:

Slip the sock over the empty bottle. You can have the lid on already. Fold the excess sock inside.  You can also trim the excess sock, fold inside & use hot glue to secure it. 

Cut two 1-inch circles from the felt. Use hot glue to stick them onto the sock.  Cut two smaller circles from paper and wrapped each circle using an aluminum foil.  Use hot glue to stick it onto the felt circles. 

Cut four fins from the cardboard / watercolor paper and use hot glue to stick them onto the bottle sides. 

Cut one long rectangle from cardboard ( 1 ½ inch in length) cut it in half.  Roll it to make a paper tube. Secure both ends with tape.  Wrap it in an aluminum foil  – fold both ends of the foil inside the paper tube. 

Wrap the yarn around your three fingers  about 10 times.  Repeat it three more times (you can use different colors of the yarn)   Insert the yarn inside the paper tubes.  If you like, you can glue the yarn inside the tubes. 

Apply the hot glue at the end of the paper tubes and stick them onto the bottom of the bottle.
