  • Glue them on two sides of the rocket.

Your rocket is all set to take off!

Ask your child to sort and assemble their one set of their stationery in the rocket holder.

Encourage your child to make multiple holders to assemble and sort the different stationery items like crayons, sketches, etc. You may also encourage them to use different colours for the rocket head and fins! How about sorting their stationery by colour?

As your child involves themselves in doing the craft, they get an opportunity to explore the creativity. This apart cutting and gluing different materials improves their fine motor grip and control.
