6. Cut out some quilling strips to make shapes to fix on the windows, the top end and the flame of the paper rocket. Prepare paper quilled teardrop shapes for the flame, a triangle shape for the top end and round loose coils for the windows.

To make this simpler, you can skip the quilling step, especially for last kids. Instead, choose sticker embellishments to decorate the rocket. You can make the background with black chart paper and spray painting some white paint with an old toothbrush. Hang it up in your child’s room so they can look at it and get inspired to chase their dreams!
