Disney Junior’s Miles From Tomorrowland takes kids deep into the universe… exposing them to the wonders of outer space, and the joys of family. Make this spaceship with the little explorers in your life and see where adventure takes you. As Miles might say, it’ll be “Galactic!”
8.5 x 11-inch white cardstock (or heavy, printable craft paper)
Cardboard toilet paper roll
Exacto knife or scissors
Hot glue gun
String or ribbon
- Download and print out both sheets (Pages 1 and 2) of designs.
- Use scissors to cut along dashed line around the black square (Image 3) on Page 2. Leave the white “window” intact for now.
- Take the resulting black square and wrap it around the toilet paper roll, using your double-stick tape to attach it to the cardboard.
- Cut out the white “window” using the Exacto knife—or small, sharp scissors.
- Use your Exacto knife or scissors to cut along the dashed line around the main spaceship (Image 1) on Page 1. (NOTE: If using an Exacto knife, make sure to use a cutting mat or other appropriate surface.)
- With your hot glue gun, put a dab of glue on top of all three white dots seen along the middle of the main spaceship (see photo for detail).
- Take the toilet paper roll and place it on top of the three hot-glue dots, pushing down slightly to adhere. Make sure the “window” on the roll is facing out, and that both rocket “noses” are facing the same direction (see photo for detail).
- Next, use the Exacto knife or scissors to cut out the rocket “flames”—Images 4 and 5 from Page 2—following the dotted line as your guide.
- Apply a small dot of hot glue at the top of each flame (near the “D23”), and then attach each flame to the inside of the toilet paper roll, on opposite sides (see photo for detail).
- Using your Exacto knife or scissors, cut out your rocket-tail piece (Image 2 on Page 1) by following the dotted line as your guide.
- Apply a small dab of hot glue to front of Image 2 (near the Disney logo); then, bend the piece slightly and apply it to the inside of the toilet paper roll, aligning the top edge with the bottom edge of the “window” (see photo for detail).
Punch a hole at the top of rocket and use some string or ribbon to hang where you like! (Can also be used as a tree topper.)
- 3, 2, 1… Blast off!
NOTE: Cutting with an Exacto knife—and any hot gluing—should be done by an adult.
