This tutorial will show you how to fold an origami rocket – just in time for July 4th! It’s not too hard, either, which makes it great as a last-minute craft for kids. The rocket can lie flat to be glued on a flat surface, or stand on its own to be used as a table center piece. Use American-themed paper or colors for a festive touch. Add glitter for some glam. 🙂 Enjoy!
Every year for the 4th of July, my family gathers in New Jersey for a barbecue. There’s a plethora of food – mostly Chinese, but some American too. I always look forward to having hot dogs. I know they’re probably so bad for you, but it’s quite delicious if you ask me!
