Hello, my name is Emma and I write the blog Science Sparks. Maggy kindly invited me to guest post today so I can tell you all about my brand new book, This Is Rocket Science!!

This Is Rocket Science contains 70 fun activities designed to help children understand how a rocket is able to blast off into space, how astronauts cope with some of the difficulties of living in space and also takes you on a tour of the solar system learning about the unimaginable distances involved and features of each planet.

You’ll learn about the forces which impact space travel such as gravity, air resistance and friction through a series of exciting activities, each including full instructions, extension ideas and all fully explained in an easily understandable way.

One of the activities in the book is an easy Milk Jug Rocket Cone.

Milk Jug Rocket Craft – Materials

To make a milk jug rocket, all you need is

  • an empty plastic milk container,
  • paper,
  • tape and
  • pens or
  • paint to decorate it.

How to make your Recycled Rocket Craft

First you’ll need to create a cone using paper and tape. The cone should sit neatly on top of the milk container.

Give the milk container a big squeeze and the cone will shoot up into the air. Try squeezing the milk container hard and then more gently to see what happens.

You should find that the harder you push the sides of the milk container together the greater the force of the air being pushed out of the container which then forces your rocket cone higher into the air!

My children and I had the BEST time putting the book together and we hope you love it as much as we do.
