Glad you are here for the full tutorial!
Here's the step by step for creating your very own Rocket Jet Pack!
Two 2-liter bottles, empty and clean
Silver spray paint
I took a piece of cardboard that fit the width of his back.
Used some old webbing and stapled in
place to go around his arms.
If I did it again I would use hot glue instead of staples. Easy peasy.
I upcycled 2 Two-liters and lightly misted the
tops of them with silver spray paint. Don't you love crafting with trash?
I cut out flames of felt
2 red and 1 orange for each rocket engine...turbine...
and hot glued them in the spout...this could get fancier, with streamers and tinsel...but it doesn't have to. You could use old grocery bags from Target.
Then we hot glued the bottles onto the cardboard.
He (Mr. 3) took it out for a test drive only to find
that the arm straps slipped down.
I took some more webbing and a buckle and stapled them
across the front for maximum stabilization.
I also hot glued on a little rectangle of felt onto
the front straps for the ignition switch.
We have lift-off! And I am now the best mom in the galaxy. It's really that easy.
Great for costumes! Great for dressing up and playing! Great for wearing to the Library!!!
I think he could instantly run faster too! So much delight.
I'd love to see your pictures of your jet packs too!
email them to Maildoodlecraft@gmail.com
I love his extreme happiness!
Garbage, spray paint, felt fire, 20 minutes...
Best mom ever status.
