You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to make a perfect rocket collage. Gather together lots of bits of textured paper and card, or get crumpling some paper to make it textured yourself. Add some other items like bottle caps if you wish.
We used paper spirals, corrugated card, some paper we screwed up and smoothed out, screwed up balls of tissue and some thick lumpy card to make our rocket.
When we started we were not worrying about the colors of the paper as the plan was to paint the whole rocket silver, but we quite like it as it is. So the silver paint idea is still orbiting and may make a landing one day!
