Children will love to create these star images using colourful dots and dabs and to make flying paper rockets to launch to the moon, or the sofa! The finished stars will definitely need to be displayed for all to see and the rockets will become great toys for the kids to enjoy imaginative play with. Both activities provide a wonderful sense of achievement once completed and the inspiration to create and make more!
Suitable for children aged 6 to 12 years. Younger ones may need a little bit of grown up help now and then.
