Snow-bound Sunday? Make a rocket

There’s only so much telly you can watch on snow day, so Bonnie is making a rocket.
You need:
A plastic bottle
A newspaper ripped into small squares
Flour – about two tablespoons
Water – mixed with flour to make a runny paste
Buttons to decorate


Put child in suitable apron
Cover bottle with paper squares dipped in flour glue until no plastic visible
Leave to dry
Stick buttons on for portholes.
Find something else for bored offspring to do next.


Not a conventional rocket…
