Super Sci-Fi Rocket fueled Jet Pack

 I'm so glad you are here! 
Isn't this the cutest craft in the universe?
This craft promises to make you a better parent in less than 20 minutes.
There are days I am just rushing around, taking care of everything that I barely notice the people I love the most.  I know we've all been there.  This craft is the solution.
It doesn't take long and anyone can do it.  And the instant joy in your persons eyes is worth every minute!
 
With my son's imagination...I knew he needed some Jet Packs.
He loves to run.  He loves the thought of flight.  
And I like making things with little expense...especially if I know they are going to get flown around at top speed.

You guys...this is my baby, but these can be custom made to fit anyone of any size. 
And I am going to show you how!

  5. So cute. Going to use it for our space theme VBS. I'm teaching the 3 year olds.

    Two questions: You spray the inside of the bottle? And how do you attach the last piece of webbing?

    Thanks!

    1. If you are doing puppets for VBS make some jet packs using 20 oz or 1 liter bottles instead of the 2 liter.

    1. Why not Princess Jet packs for space future. The Jetsons, am I too old for this blog? Lol. Pink felt. Even tulle or beads so easy. The beads could be the turbines powering up. Inside before the felt.

  23. We made these with our grandsons tonight. I used velcro instead of staples to adhere the webbing to the cardboard and the chest webbing. It turned out really nice.. Thanks for the idea! Kathy Fry!

  24. Thanks so much for sharing this idea (found on Pinterest); my husband made these for our 2 boys for their astronaut costumes and they loved them! We used black elastic belt webbing and black duct tape to cover the cardboard and attach the bottles. Thanks again!

  27. I love this and I coulnd'nt wait to do it. I am half way done and so far they look great. I am making three, I have four boys, but one is 15 and a little old for it. I added pull cords for the starter. I used the badge clips with the retractible cord. $3 something for 6 at walmart. Thanks for the great idea.

    1. What she said. ^

      Not that you couldn't add pink glitter or something, but you really don't need to modify this for girls.

  33. If you paint the insides of the 2 leters, it might not kook as real, but the paint won't get rubed off from people handeling them, my rain, etc.

  35. absolutely girls can be astronauts. I sure wish someone would have made me one when I was a kid.. only I dont think two liter plastic bottles had been invented yet. Girls can rock these just as well as boys..they have imaginations, too, yanno.

  36. Enough of this!

    I am making me a set right now and I'll wear it on my next metric century charity bike ride!!!

  37. Just got the stuff to make this with my 5yo grandson. But he has informed me that there needs to be handle parts like Perry the Platypus has on his jetpack. But I am completely stumped as to what would hold up. Any ideas? If you are not sure who Perry is, here is his picture. http://www.elginpk.com/worsley1011_3/reny/yum.jpg

  38. This. Is. Awesome. My son has been asking me if jetpacks were "in the real world." Yes they are!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What fun! My little superhero insisted on making a smaller version for his stuffed bear so they could be "super" together!
    The only thing I'm doing differently is instead of using staples on the arm straps, I'm hot gluing them. Don't wanna take any chances with getting poked. :)
    Thanks for posting!
