    Step 1

    Cut one of the craft sticks into small sections; this will be the support that will hold your craft stick rocket ship together. Line three craft sticks next to each other and apply tacky glue across them. Next, you want to place your cut section of craft stick across the glue and let dry.

    While your tacky glue dries, cut out your rocket ship accents from construction paper. Use whatever colors you want on yours. You will need two rectangles, a circle, and a triangle for each rocket ship. Don't forget to cut out some flames to add to the bottom of your rockets so you can see them blasting off into space!
