Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Craft Shapes

Staple each part of the template to multiple sheets of paper to quickly cut out lots of shapes.

Once you have the rocket ship template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much fun making this outer space craft!

I recommend having a rocket ship that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. Start with the large part of the rocket ship.
  2. Glue the bottom of the ship onto the rocket.
  3. Glue on the wings. Make sure the straight edge is at the bottom.
  4. Glue on the nose.
  5. Glue on the window.
  6. Glue the orange flame on top of the red flame.
  7. Glue the flame to the bottom of the rocket.
  8. Optional: Glue your completed rocket onto a piece of black construction paper.
  9. don’t forget to write your name on the back
