A Name Rocket Craft For Preschoolers…

A Name Rocket Craft For Preschoolers…

This year I am a Bostik Blogger and we are sent a box of craft items each month along with a theme. Last month the theme was flowers and we made a simple daffodil for toddlers. The theme this month is space and with it being half term I had chance to get Alice to make a name rocket. Alice is four years old and was able to do this on her own.

A Name Rocket Craft

Materials you will need…

  • Black paper/card/foam board
  • Glue – I used the Bostik Fine & Wide Glu Pen
  • Coloured paper – any colours is fine
  • Pipe Cleaners – we used yellow, red and pink (because this is Alice’s favourite colour!)
  • Scissors
  • A pen
  • Yellow stars

Step by step guide…

1.Cut out the coloured squares, depending what name you are writing on your rocket, you will need a square for each letter. You will also need to cut a triangle for the top.

In my perfect world the squares would be the same size, but I let Alice do this all on her own.


2. Stick the triangle at the top of the black card and then add each of the squares. Leave enough room at the bottom for your pipe cleaners. We used the Bostik Fine & Wide Glu Pen, Alice is able to use this on her own with no mess.


3. Next take the pipe cleaners and cut them about an inch long.

4. Stick the pipe cleaners to the bottom of your rocket.


5. Take the yellow stars and stick them onto the black card.

6. With your pen write the letters of the name on each of the squares.

Your finished rocket with a very happy Alice. Who is very proud of her rocket and is taking it to school today.

Save it for later…

    Aww this is adorable! What a fab craft. Libby took her rocket to school that she made as well, it’s funny how proud they are of little things like that.
