Today’s Cardboard Tube Space Shuttle craft comes straight out of the Happy Handmade
Book that I received for free from my friend Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks
in order to provide an honest review of the craft e-book she contributed to. After our U is for Universe
activity we have been in an outer space kind of mood so we chose to make the Cardboard Tube Space Shuttles.
Cardboard Tube Space Shuttle
I loved how easy they were to make, and used all recycled supplies (cardboard tubes and cereal boxes). I quickly cut out our space shuttle frames and pulled out some toilet paper rolls. Then we painted our shuttles and headed off to the grocery store. When we returned we decorated them and started playing. My daughter is determined to fly into space when she gets older…my little astronaut in training :).
