Space Shuttle Discover-Trash


Getting Started

Always use your imagination and be creative when building these kids crafts or any others. It's your creation, so be inventive when looking for building supplies — you just may be surprised! When building your project, experiment with new and different ways of putting it together. The most important thing is to have fun!

1• Plastic two liter bottle
• Masking tape
• Two paper towel tubes
• Some old cardboard or construction paper
• Milk carton
• Three bottle caps

1. Cutting the wings!

To begin this project you must first draw out your wing design for your shuttle. When you’ve settled on your design go ahead and cut the wings out.


42. Lay out a rough version!

Now you can start to lay out your rough version. The plastic bottle will be your fuel tank, the two paper towel tubes the shuttle’s booster engines. You can make paper cones for the tops of your booster engines, or maybe cut out a piece of egg carton. Get everything laid out the way you like, and to try using new supplies and ideas.






3. Make your base layers!

Now you can tape or paint everything up. I covered all my parts with tape, then glued my wings onto my shuttle.


4. Details, Details!

The final details are very important. You can put on the windows, tail and wing flaps, and anything else you want. Use your imagination and customize your Space Shuttle as much as you want.


5. Put it all together!

Now glue or tape all your pieces together. You can add some cotton balls into your engines as smoke, or maybe even build a cool launch tower to go along with your shuttle. Now it’s time for 3 ...2 ...1 ...Liftoff! Have fun!
