Have you ever dreamed of having your rocket? Well now you can! All you need is some household items to make a high-flying water rocket. This is a pretty easy project that can be done in 30 minutes of less.

Step 1: Get the Materials

In order to build this cool rocket, you'll probably have everything you need at home. These are the materials you need.


2 2-litter pop bottles- You can use any size, just make sure both are the same size, though. I like 2-litters best because they go the highest. Try experimenting with different sizes.

Duct tape- The ultimate tape.

Hot glue gun with glue for it

Cardboard- Find the sturdiest.

X-Acto knife

After you get the hot glue gun, you should probably plug it in. This way it's hot when you're ready to use it.

Step 4: Glue the Fins

Now, if you plugged the glue gun in earlier, it should be hot by now. If you didn't, you'll have to wait for it to heat up.

To glue the fins on, simply choose a side of your fins that you want to glue on. (Use the same side for all of the fins.) Then, put a good bead of glue on the fin and press it onto the duct tape. Make sure that the fins are all the same height and that they are parallel with the rocket. If they are tilted, the rocket might spin.

Duct tape might work, but I just used hot glue because I could hold the fin in place while the glue hardened.

a estes model rocket launch pad works great for these just glue a pc of straw on the side. i made one with 20 oz. bottles and used this method. me and my 2 boys are making one from a 5 gallon water jug now to try.
