Two 2-liter soda bottles (empty) – may discard lids
Small piece of sand paper
Silver spray paint
String, yarn or ribbon
Orange cellophane or tissue paper
Take the labels off the soda bottles. Lightly sand paper the bottles all over (this helps the spray paint stick better).
Spray paint all over the bottles, allow to dry. Use a second coat if you want – I didn’t see a need to.
Use duct or gorilla tape to attach the bottles together – also put the string/yarn/ribbon as straps attached by the tape and tying. Be sure to measure it to your child, or they may not be able to get their arms in if it’s too small.
Put a small piece of rolled tape inside the bottle top, then stick the orange cellophane/paper so it’s attached and sticks out (these are the flames from the jet packs).
Viola – complete, and so much fun!!!
What color would YOUR kiddos make their DIY Jet Packs?
And as promised……a second fun and super simple project for you today!
These Monster-Making felt kits are so much fun for the kids, and you can make them in minutes (or longer, depends on you)!
Felt – various colors
Use the scissors to cut out various shapes for your monsters – Heads, Hair, Eyes, Noses, Mouths, Teeth, Scars, Horns, Ears, Bolts…..get creative!
Then just let your kids create and recreate fun monsters and other Halloween fun creatures!
If you want, you can also put magnets on the back of it all and have it stay together better. Really, the options are only dependent on yours (and your kids’) imagination!
