Step 1: Material Required
You'll need the following materials which are very easily available at home.
1. A sheet of paper ( A4 works best )
3.a big rubber band or elastic band.
once you've got these material you're all set for the launch .
Step 2: Getting Started
So in the first step make a vertical crease in the centre of the paper and fold as shown in the images along the crease
Follow the folds show in the image , make creases shown and fold along them.
After done with step 3 fold the paper on the vertical crease.
Now make a crease as shown and fold along it.
Now once you're done with step 4 make a small diagonal cut on the open side of the rocket as shown in the image.
Now open the rocket from the vertical crease. you'll have 2 diagonal cuts on both sides of the rocket.
fold the lower part of the rocket ( part below the cut ) on both sides as show in the images.
Now again close the rocket by folding along the vertical crease as show in the image.
Step 9: All Set for the Launch
You're now all set for the launch.
to launch take 2 rubber bands and join the together as show in the image and then hook one end of the band in the cut of the rocket and hold the other in your hand now pull back the rocket as much as you can an launch high in the air .
Don't point the rocket or shoot it on anyone's face, it goes really fast. its the quality of the rubber band which decides how high your rocket will go. with a good quality elastic band it goes up to a 1000 feet
