We drew aliens and flowers and stars and stripes. We even used stickers.
We took turns launching them off the back of the deck - the goal was to get them over both the clothes lines - but the headwind toyed with that a bit and I am not sure if anyone made it over both.
Some of the exercise was running down the stairs to collect the rockets - which were sometimes hiding in the strawberries or zucchini or even around the corner (the star and stripe rocket even disappeared - I am sure we will find it eventually)
We got good at the puffs needed to get a good launch - although having to chase the rockets in between probably kept us from making ourselves dizzy.
We had countdowns and air leaks and spiraling crashes.
And we had FUN!!!

|Paper, straws and smiles -what a great recipe!|
|Double booster rocket - NASA would be proud of his design!|
