Comments about Blast-off Rockets Craft Kit :

Great product but you MUST make sure to purchase enough so that staff can practice first. The instructions do not help very much with the correct ratio of alka seltzer (not included, make sure to buy!!!) and water. We discovered that the less water the better! You need plenty of air space in the bottle for the pressure to build otherwise the result is the tiniest pop, not too exciting for the children. Also, the launch pads get soaked QUICK! Messy but hey, the kiddos love that!

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.

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.
