Comments about Blast-off Rockets Craft Kit :

They were fun to make, but did not shoot far. We doubled the alka-seltzers when we made our fuel. That seemed to help.

Comments about Blast-off Rockets Craft Kit :

The kids had a lot of fun shooting these off. I didn't use the cone as it was too difficult to wrap and put on the cone. Overall it was fun

Comments about Blast-off Rockets Craft Kit :

Great outdoor project!! Need to add more alka seltzer than the directions call for,and make sure the stopper is in tight - shake it up prior to placing it in the cylinder. Can go up 2 stories high. However the paper cylinders and the cone paper are very temporary once they get wet. Use acetate instead of paper.

Comments about Blast-off Rockets Craft Kit :

the rocket did not fly well at all. the base fell apart after a few uses. i would suggest switching to a rubber stopper with a flange at the top for a tighter seal and to prevent pushing stopper into the bottel
