Upcycled Pringle Can Jet Pack (How-To)
Here’s a fun and super quick craft (not to mention delicious, as it involves eating 2 cans of pringles prior to making it). Follow the link after the jump for instructions and more pictures.
2 Pringles cans
1 3′ length of string/ribbon
1 sheet of orange construction paper or scrapbook paper
1 sheet of red construction paper or tissue paper
1 sheet of yellow construction paper or tissue paper
2 pieces of aluminum foil
- Wrap Pringles cans on aluminum foil and tape the edges down
- Tape the Pringles cans together
- Cut your piece of stiff orange paper in a circle about 6 inches in diameter. (Whatever the radius of your circle is, that will be the height of the top of your rocket.
- Cut the circle in half and with each half circle fold only the edge of the straight line (the part you cut in half) together and then tape to create 2 orange cones.
- Tape thew two orange cones to the top of your Pringles cans
- Cut 1in strips from the red, orange and yellow papers about 1 inch in width and tape them to the bottom of the pringles cans.
- Make them more ‘flamelike’ if you feel like, by cutting points into the end of the paper strips
- Tape the center of the length of string to the back of the jet pack (I centered the string and then taped the string to both pringles cans.
- Attach to your kid by first looping the string over the shoulders and under the armpits and tying a bow on the back, in between the pack and your child’s back.
- Enjoy the cuteness that ensues!
