A spacecraft is a vehicle designed to fly in outerspace, with of without humans on board. Many scientists believe that space travels will be possible for all humans in the near future. How about making, your own spacecraft miniature?

Materials and tools:

  • Two toilet paper rolls.
  • Duct tape.
  • Scissors.
  • Pencil.
  • Colored paper.
  • A small plate. 
  • Aluminium foil.
