Paper Space Shuttle

paper space shuttle

Mike made this cute paper shuttle with the kids over New Years’. They rolled a sheet of paper for the body, traced a saucer to make the cone (you only need a quarter circle to make a cone, but they used the full circle and doubled over), and cut small triangles for the base. Emma drew the entire family as astronauts!

Do your kids love the idea of space travel?

  1. I love the astronauts! In preschool my girls made similar space ships but one of my daughters was absent that day. We had fun helping her make one at home.(we used a toilet paper roll for the “body”)

  2. Great craft! Yes, Anna loves the idea of space travel and plays space ships quite often, especially when her boy friend comes over to play. Emma is so creative with her drawings!

    Of course the kiddos love space travel. I think most children enjoy space travel adventures.

    The pictures of the family in the windows make my heart smile. So sweet!

  4. I saw this on pinterest recently and had to add it to my World Space Week board I hadn’t realised at the time that it was by you – Brilliant and I love the drawings will have to try something next year in world space week thank you for some more inspiration.
